70-year-old Rod Iverson from North Dakota, a part-time Lake Havasu resident has been pronounced deceased after accidentally shooting himself yesterday morning.

Today’s News-Herald, an independent newspaper reported the gentleman was cleaning multiple guns when a .9 MM handgun discharged into his abdomen, which occurred while the man’s wife was out of the house between 9:15 and 11 AM. She returned to find her husband sitting in his chair like he was taking a nap, but he told her he was hurt.

The man was transported to Havasu Regional Medical Center, but later succumbed to his injury in the operating room.

Lake Havasu City Police are saying there is nothing to indicate the incident was anything other than an accident.
