A man who lost his Farmington Hills home in a fire last year died in Royal Oak Monday, in what police believe was an accidental shooting. 

Royal Oak Patch reported Monday that Randy Michael Bergeron, 61, was found with his legally registered handgun next to his body. Cause of death was a gunshot wound, according to Royal Oak Police.

"It looks like his handgun was accidentally discharged," said Royal Oak Police Chief Corrigan O'Donohue. 

Bergeron was a resident of Royal Oak. According to a court document posted online, he formerly lived in a home on Ballantrae in Farmington Hills that was destroyed by fire on March 29, 2012

The lone occupant of the home was awakened by his dog barking and suffered back injuries when he jumped to safety. According to news reports, which did not identify the man, the dog also escaped the blaze.
