    Miro, I assume, is the name of the person holding the gun--a person in the story. Indeed, it does mean "close" to the discharge end of the gun. "Head and shoulders" could be a metaphor for the rear (handle or stock of a gun) of the weapon or the upper body of the person holding it. Occasionally, you may hear "the business end of a gun".
