Pascagoula Man Killed In Gun Accident

A Pascagoula man died Sunday morning in what the coroner describes as a freak accident with a gun.

Jackson County Coroner Vicki Broadus says Randy Gurley, 40, was in his hotel room at the Travel Motor Lodge Sunday morning, apparently trying to work on a gun that had mechanical problems. Broadus says the gun went off, striking Gurley in the head.

A maid found him Sunday morning when she went to change the linens. The coroner has ruled Gurley's death accidental.
