Columnist M.D. Harmon died after gun he thought was unloaded went off

Harmon, 71, was in the basement of his home in Sanford with the son of a family friend when he unloaded a .357 revolver and handed it to the teenager, who was unfamiliar with firearms, according to the report released by the Office of Chief Medical Examiner.

But Harmon apparently had not emptied every chamber, and when the boy cocked the firearm and pretended to shoot it, the gun went off, according to the medical examiner’s records.
