DEERFIELD BEACH, FL – A 14-year-old is dead after reportedly committing suicide at a gun range while target shooting with his father.

The teen, identified as Vincent Colonna, was at Gun World gun range with his father last week when the incident happened.

Colonna’s father told family members he was shooting his weapon when he looked up and saw his son slumped on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound.

The teen was airlifted to Broward Health North where he later died, Broward Sheriff’s Office said.

According to witnesses at the scene, along with surveillance footage, the gunshot wound was self-inflicted. However, the boy’s mother believes it was an accident.

“I know there was nothing wrong. I know Vincent was happy. He did not commit suicide,” said Joanna De Colonna.

She says she and her son had been a day at the beach for the 4th of July holiday, and that he was getting ready for a couple of chess tournaments.

However, she admitted she doesn’t have a lot of details regarding her son’s death and that she has been discouraged from seeing the surveillance footage.

“I know my son, and I want to see that video. I’m his mom. I would know,” said Joanna. “If something’s bothering Vincent, he would tell me.”

While the shooting could have been accidental, the fact that police are investigating this as a suicide after speaking with witnesses and reviewing video makes that scenario unlikely.

Gun range suicides are not rare, and we have other articles detailing people doing the same thing Colonna allegedly did. Hell, on Monday there was a suicide at a North Carolina gun range — and it was their second.

Obviously, I don’t know the details behind Colonna’s death or his possible motivation, but one lure is the fact that you can rent guns from the range. So, if any of you are planning to take yourself out and don’t have a gun to do it with, just visit your neighborhood gun range and rent a high caliber hand gun.

Most ranges don’t charge you until you leave, so aside from some mental trauma you may cause other patrons, your suicide will be totally free!
