A man shot a teenager accidentally during the #NoLackinChallenge where friends pull guns on each other,

Memphis, TN – A teenager was in critical condition after he was accidentally shot in a café when his friend was playing an internet challenge where the participants pull out their guns on each other to see who is packing.

It’s like challenge coins, but with loaded weapons.

In this instance, a 17-year-old was shot in the head when his 21-year-old friend Sherman Lackland drew his gun in a booth and accidentally shot him, according to WBRC-TV.

The internet game is called #NoLackinChallenge. There are YouTube videos that show friends approaching friends and pulling their gun out to see if their friend is also carrying a weapon. But no shots are supposed to be fired, as what happened at E’s 24 Hour Café.

"A real loud bang, then I see the guy across from him fall in the floor,” said Thomas Fitzpatrick, a witness who was in the restaurant according to WBRC. Fitzpatrick said the three men were sitting together when the shooting occurred. Fitzpatrick said the shooter Lackland was upset after shooting his friend.

"He started grabbing him and telling him to get up and then he was kind of mad and was swinging stools and stuff,” Fitzpatrick said.

Lackland was charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and unlawful possession of a weapon.

Anyone see who the majority carrying and doing this are? None of NRA people or real gun people just "Hood and gangsta" wannabes.

I am a young man of the same generation most of the people in this video represent. I cannot tell you how frustrating and concerning this kind of behavior is to myself and my peers. These guys, and this horrible, trendy, internet pop-culture makes it more difficult every day for responsible youngsters to gain the respect and support of our community, and I can’t blame anyone for being skeptical or unwilling to extend their trust to us. Some of us out there are incredibly thankful for our right to bear arms, place high value on gun safety and the responsible ownership of firearms, and are very proud to enter society as positive, contributing members within our community. Don’t write us off just yet! Many young people are determined, and working every day, to keep the behavior displayed in this video from becoming the “norm” of our generation.

If these POS's are gonna get guns, I can't think of a better use for them. It's also good practice as they are destined to kill each other anyway.

I wonder how many of these people have a C&C permit? If they do, they need to screen people a little better.
