A South Carolina man who found a bulletproof vest and wore it asked his friend to shoot him and when the friend obliged, he ended up dead.
According to police, Blake Randall Wardell, 25, of Honea Path was killed Wednesday with a single gunshot by 18-year-old Taylor Ann Kelly. The bullet had completely missed the vest and pierced his heart, killing him instantly.
‘The bullet went through the top edge of the material. It missed the vest,’ Anderson County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Lt. Sheila Cole told Los Angeles Times.
According to local reports, Warren found the vest in a garage. Kelly told police that after trying it on, he asked her to shoot him.
The investigation is still going on and Kelly has been charged with involuntary manslaughter.
