DO NOT SHOOT GUNS IN THE AIR! Seriously.
Local law enforcement authorities here have confirmed that State Rep. Armando “Mando” Martinez, District 39, is recovering after being struck by a “stray bullet.”
According to Weslaco police, Martinez underwent surgery today related to a gunshot wound to the head. Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra confirmed that Martinez is in stable condition and that the surgery was to remove the “projectile” from his head.
The sheriff said Martinez felt something on top of his head and was rushed to a local hospital after the representative’s wife observed a small hole on the top left side of her husband’s head.
Rep. Martinez is lucky. People have been killed by this sort of idiocy. Don’t do that, and if you ever hear of someone boasting about doing it, give them hell about it. And get well quickly, Rep. Martinez.
