"Ring-A-Ding Dead", Way to Die #408, is the fourth death featured in "Death, The Final Frontier", which aired July 15, 2012.
Dwight is an obnoxious hipster with a habit of going to yard sales before the sellers could open them, and snatching up anything that catches his fancy without paying as much as a penny for it (which is stealing, of course).
One day, he goes to a yard sale two hours early, and browses the selection for something that he could snitch, when he notices an odd-looking antique ring. The homeowner sees Dwight with the item, realizing that the ring belonged to his grandfather and he had been looking for it for a decade.
He and Dwight get into a struggle over the ring, when something struck the latter in the eye and through the brain, killing the sticky-fingered hipster. The reason for this: the antique ring that Dwight attempted to steal is actually a ring gun, and it was loaded. Dwight had accidentally shot himself with it during the struggle.
Description as seen on the Spike TV website
