    Gun accident leaves Houston rapper dead, police say

    A local rapper died Friday afternoon from an accidental gunshot wound to the head at the small recording studio he co-owned and operated in west Houston, police said.

    Officers responding to reports of a shooting at Fam Tide Records in the 12700 block of Medfield found 32-year-old Michael Francis dead inside the studio, said Sgt. Robert Blain of HPD's homicide division.

    Investigators are in the process of interviewing four of Francis' friends and co-workers who were with him inside the studio at the time of the shooting, but preliminary information indicates that the man shot himself in the head by accident while playing with the gun, Blain said.

    "He was just messing around is what we're being told," he said.

    In the aftermath of the shooting Friday night, grieving relatives and friends gathered to weep and comfort each other in the darkened parking lot outside the studio, which is located in a small strip mall sandwiched between a day care center and hair salon. The glass storefront of the studio is painted with the names of affiliated groups, including Da Dub Spot and SWAT.

    A woman who identified herself as Francis' mother said her son was a rapper, musician, and writer.

    "It was a terrible accident," she said.

    Another story says that he was twirling the gun. I'd like to know if there was video to rule it out an accident.

    It appears to be the same thing the gentleman in the top picture on the left has in his waist band, a smith and wesson 22a. Not entirely surprising given the gentleman on the right is also carrying a smith & wesson.

    The blurred text on the barrel that you can't read says
    ".22 LONG RIFLE"

    Hard core.
