A man fatally shot himself in the head while trying to demonstrat­e the safety on a gun Monday afternoon, his friend told Fort Worth police.

The Tarrant County medical examiner’s office identified the man as 37-year-old Goran Banjac.

Shortly before 5 p.m., the victim’s friend called 911 to report that Banjac had held a gun to his head as a demonstrat­ion of how the safety works, but it discharged when he pulled the trigger, Fort Worth police spokesman Jimmy Pollozani said.

Officers responded to his house in the 4800 block of Madyson Ridge Drive, near Chisholm Trail Parkway and Sycamore School Road. No further informatio­n will be released until detectives finish their investigat­ion.
