Watch this story... Jesse Hernandez says he was cleaning his M-16 when it just went off. The bullet went through his wall and killed 24-year-old neighbor Salvo Garcia. This all happened late Friday night into Saturday morning on Bandera Road near Hillcrest. Garcia's wife found her husband when she got home from work just after midnight Saturday morning. Police aren't sure if any charges will be filed in the case but they do say the shooting does look accidental. Hernandez says he feels bad for the Garcia family and wishes it never happened. He also says he is getting rid of his gun. He bought it a few months ago for protection.
