A fun night drinking with friends turned tragic for a man in Mexico, who died when he posed with a gun to shoot a selfie, but accidentally fired the weapon.
Oscar Otero Aguilar was enjoying a booze-filled night with two buddies last weekend in Mexico City when he picked up his .45-caliber pistol and thought it would be a good idea to take a picture of himself, Mexico’s Proceso magazine reports.
But when the 21-year-old went to take the killer selfie, he accidentally pulled the trigger of the wood-handled pistol, firing off a single round into his forehead, according to police.
After officers found Aguilar dead at the scene, one of his friends, Omar Abner Campos Vives, was arrested, while his other buddy, known as “El Paco,” somehow escaped and is currently on the run.
Despite this, the Ministry of Public Security said they believed Aguilar’s death was an accident and that the selfie was supposed to be posted to Facebook, Proceso reports.
