Jacksonville, FLA --

A minister who was using a .357 Magnum to compare sin to Russian Roulette died after shooting himself in the head with a blank round before several hundred parishioners, including his family.

Melvyn Nurse, 35, dies Thursday at University Medical Center, five days after he shot himself during his sermon at Livingway Christian Fellowship Church International.

Nurse was preaching about sin and guns Saturday when he raised the gun to his head and pulled the trigger, shattering his skull.

Blanks contain a hard, cardboardlike wad that shoots several feet from the barrel when fired, police said.
