Budapest police said that he had leaned out of a window and fired two shots from his 9mm Beretta at a neighbor’s rooster whose crowing was disturbing his slumber, in an effort to scare it away. Then, to show his wife that there were no more bullets in the gun, he put it to his head and pulled the trigger. There was a bullet still in the chamber.
