Phil the weatherman abducts Phil the groundhog and drives off the cliff at the rock quarry, where the truck explodes and they are killed. But since Phil (Bill Murray) is reliving the same day over and over, he wakes up the next day alive, and that day, and their deaths, never happened.

A groundhog dies in an explosion and you hear it scream. The film famously takes place in a time loop, however, so the death arguably didn’t occur and the groundhog is alive by the end of the film.

The film takes place in a 24-hour time loop where the protagonist wakes up at 6 AM on Groundhog Day regardless of what happened in the previous loop. The protagonist commits suicide in a variety of ways (including driving a car off a cliff, jumping off a building, and electrocuting himself in a bath with a toaster) but always wakes up at the beginning of the next loop. No characters are permanently dead by suicide by the end of the film, but themes of suicide and wishing to die are explored throughout the film.

Phil states that he's been stuck in the loop so long he's become "a god", and wonders if God is actually omnipotent, or just someone who has been around long enough to know everything. This is framed as part of his ongoing breakdown, and nobody thinks he has a point.

No, but at one point point the main character scoffs at the idea of a man crying in front of others/a woman because he thinks it's unmanly. The narrative does not agree with him on this viewpoint

There is a homeless man shown at multiple points throughout the movie. A little past the halfway point in the movie, the protagonist tries to help him by giving him food and medical attention, but each time, he dies.

No shots ever fired, however a police officer is seen brandishing a gun during the quarry scene, and a city official encourages him to fire it.
