He pointed the gun toward his head and the gun accidentally went off. Hernandez received a bullet wound to the head.
His girlfriend called 911 immediately and he was taken to SAMMC with non life-threatening injures.
Amazingly, the victim was able to walk himself to the ambulance.
No charges are expected to filed
