Shooting Victim Warns Against Firing Weapons In the Air
WESLACO – Law enforcement is warning to think twice before including gunfire in your New Year's Eve celebrations.
State Representative Armando Martinez was hit in the head by a bullet during celebratory gunfire three years ago.
On January 1, 2017, Martinez was hit by a stray bullet and required neurosurgery. Since then, he's been working to bring change with a piece of legislation for reckless discharge of a weapon.
Police say anyone who fires a weapon in the air could be held criminally accountable if the round fired hit someone or causes damage to someone's property.
