1977: Actor and comedian Freddie Prinze, the star of 1970s sitcom "Chico and the Man," dies at the age of 22 in Los Angeles the day after shooting himself in the head in front of his business manager. The death was initially ruled a suicide, but a jury in a civil case brought years later found that his death was accidental. Prinze had a history of playing Russian roulette to frighten his friends for his amusement, but he had also left a note in his apartment reading: "I can't take any more. It's all my fault. There is no one to blame but me." Prinze was also the father of fellow actor Freddie Prinze Jr.
