Accidental Shooting of Texas Man by Himself - He's Dead

Houston Chronicle reports
A 40-year-old man accidentally fatally shot himself as he was putting his gun on safety early Wednesday morning in Dickinson.
Duane Johnson died after accidentally shooting himself about 2:25 a.m. Wednesday at his business in the 3700 block of Medical Park drive, according to the Dickinson Police Department.
Police said Johnson went to check on his business after he received a call from an alarm company about the building. The building had not been broken into. Johnson accidentally shot himself in the chest as he tired to put the gun's safety on.
How is such a thing even possible? Could this Texas man have been so unfamiliar with firearms that he aimed it at his chest while trying to engage the safety? How did anyone know that's what he was doing anyway?
For me, there are some questions about this one, but the bottom line seems clear, man, gun, dead.
