ATLANTA, GA – A 13-year-old boy has died after he accidentally shot himself while filming on Instagram Live.

Malachi Hemphill, 13, had just returned to his room when his mother and sister heard a loud bang. When they ran upstairs to investigate, they found the teen had accidentally shot himself.

“We kicked in the door. We found him just laying there in a pool of blood,” said his mother, Shaniqua Stephens. “My daughter screamed and said, ‘Mom turn his phone off!’ As I proceeded to look at his phone he was on Instagram Live.”

Hemphill was rushed to the hospital where he would be pronounced dead. Turns out Hemphill was live on Instagram while handling a gun when someone watching asked why he didn’t have a clip in the gun.

“As he put the clip in the gun, that is when the gun went off,” said Stephens.

Police are now trying to find out where the teen got the gun. Stephens heard he got the gun from a friend who got it from someone else. She also said she and her husband tried to monitor Hemphill’s friends and online activities, but that he would make multiple online profiles.

“It can happen to the best parents,” said the teen’s stepfather. “It can happen to the best people.”

  • I’m confused on why two of you think this is funny!?

  • Nice going dumbass

  • That’s hell of sad! I have a teenage son & 2 pre teens, this is scary shit!

  • My thoughts exactly. Nothing funny about this ????

  • No. If it were an adult being an idiot, that’s one thing. This was a kid. Not funny.

  • Not meaning it’d be funny if it was an adult…but I’d have an easier time thinking “dumbass”. My heart hearts for his mama and stepdad. I can’t imagine. About 30 miles away from me, a little 8 year old girl was accidentally shot in the throat by her 9 year old cousin, just this past Friday. They took her off life support yesterday, her 9th birthday. Gun safety is so important. I’m just sick over this.

  • Jessica Gonzales

  • Thanks!

  • Teenagers have a secret life. My dad and I hunted since I was 6/7, he taught me how to safely use firearms. Maybe it’s time to have a basic gun safety class in school using mock weapons. It seems like this is happening all the time. Kids today are exposed to things at such a young age.

  • A 13 year old “youth” with a handgun? Yeah, him taking himself out with it before he shoots someone else is a good outcome for society.

    The simple act of inserting a magazine into a semiautomatic pistol will not… CANNOT… make it go off if there’s not a round in the chamber to start with. When you put a magazine into an unloaded semi-auto, you have to, on purpose, pull the slide back and release it to chamber a round. At that point, most modern firearms have internal safeties that will prevent the pistol from firing unless the trigger is pulled, again on purpose. Even if the firearm was defective, there was more mishandling going on than “he stuck a clip in it and it went bang.”

    Sorry for the family. This is why you don’t play with firearms.

  • Just another typical 13 year old with a loaded gun… He found… Was going to it use to protect ppl from gangs. He waz a good boy n shiiiieeet.

    I can’t help but feel the world is now a safer place.

    lol what. cruel?

  • imonfiredammit

    cruel? as opposed to factory farms where most of our meat comes from.

  • Old Man Metal

    No shit. Unless you’re a vegetarian, you are contributing to an existence that is orders of magnitude more cruel than the worst day a hunted animal ever experiences. So tired of the ignorant hypocrisy around this particular issue.

  • Taster’sChoice
  • Please stop acting like this is some sheltered choir boy. Obviously he wanted to act like a gang banger and paid the price. Good thing he shot himself because if he had a gun and was acting like this that could have easily been someone else.

  • Are you vegan Kerry Proctor?

  • Valkyrie Ziege

  • Very sad.

  • Yo stfu, a fuckn 13 year old just lost their life and you on here criticizing his life, like you damn raised his ass. You gonna bury him, get that money up for his funeral, then stfu or pay respect, he is a fuckn child, fuckn low life son

  • GracieW

    Make sure you inform other animals on the food chain that you also find their hunting of prey to be cruel. Good grief.

  • Josh

    Could only make so many house party movies before the 15 minutes ran out.

  • Josh

    It’s up to the operator to determine which end of the gun they want or need to be on.

  • Leslie Mashmann

    Oh God not again! He’s only thirteen – kids are stupid, invulnerable, easily led at thirteen. He wanted to be a thug? No one knows that. That nice looking boy is dead – dead forever, and forever is a very long time. Where did the gun come from? Hell, anybody can get a gun in this country. RIP child. Your family has a long road ahead of them. God keep

  • LA Woman

    If that was my son or brother last thing that would even come to mind is his phone I mean he’s bleeding to death but no wait check his phone I don’t get the way some people think I really don’t nor do I want too. This is just sad in the end a 13 year old with a gun that killed him cause he was trying to be cool, It seems to be killing a lot of kids nowadays I never saw so much tragedy and drama growing up like I see daily its just a different time now .When we’re older none of that cool shit matters cause you realize whats really important as you journey through life where he’ll never know cause his was sadly cut too short.

  • This is the guns fault! We should have stricter gun laws so this doesn’t happen! The only people who need guns are the government. We can trust them to protect us….Says everyone without a brain.

    They seem more worried about trying to tell the world they are good parents, than mourning the loss of the boy.
    Seems odd to me.

    Where did he get the gun, the clip?
    I grew up in a great home and ya know what…no gun access…period.

    This just strikes me as careless stupidity for all concerned.
    Get rid of the damned bang bangs around idiot kids.

These days alone, I generated close to $36,000 until now with no more than my home computer as well as some spare time, despite that i have a fulltime 9 to 5 job. Even everyone not used to this, can make $89/per h easily and the earnings can go even higher over time… This is how i started

    1. Why/how did the kid have a gun?
    2. Why/how did the kid have a clip?
    3. Why was his sister’s first thought to turn off the phone? Had she been watching him? At any rate, how can the phone be the first thing to come to mind when your brother is lying in a pool of blood?
    4. I sympathize with the parents because no matter what you do, you can’t raise a good kid in a bad neighborhood without more luck than they had. The bad elements are always calling to the kid seductively, “Come be a man with a gun. Be a man and sell drugs. Be a man and help out a gang. Be a woman and get your own checks and apartment by getting a baby.” And so forth.
