What are the odds: Second man in 6 months allegedly shoots himself in head while handcuffed in police car

OK, now this is strange ...

A high schooler reportedly shot self in a police car, recalling a similar incident

From the piece:

Then on Wednesday in Texas, a police officer managed to overlook a very large gun when searching a high schooler he was taking in to custody. The 17-year-old, who was being detained by police after a friend reported him a suicide risk, reportedly shot himself in the back of the head while he was in the police cruiser in handcuffs. The young man did not die and is in a critical but stable condition in hospital. The police report in this latter case appears more credible than the Arkansas incident and investigators are probing why the student’s gun was missed when he was searched.
