    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.

    I'm willing to bet he was just playing with it, didn't want to look like a dumbass, so he said he was cleaning it when it went off. Still looks like an idiot.

    How can you clean ANY firearm without checking if it's chambered first? I'm scared shitless about accidental discharges, so I check it a few times to be sure

    Just cross reference that with Salvio Garcia to see if any of the addresses are similar.

    No dice there...

    I emailed the author of the article. I'd be surprised if he could give me any information, though.

    I'm thinking he may sell this thing pretty cheap, might be able to make some money off of this. :big grin:
