HOUSTON, TEXAS — Police have located 25-year-old Cassandra Damper after she shot a man in the head during a Facebook live video that was rolling on one of their profiles.
The shooting is being called an accident, but it should be called negligence, because these idiots had absolutely no respect for the gun, themselves or their safety.
26-year-old Devyon Holmes, who was sitting in the seat next to Damper, was the victim shot in the head after Damper is seem racking the slide and pointing the gun at him while pulling the trigger.
Damper pulled the trigger prior to this, and you can hear the ‘click’ once this happens. The man in the back seat makes a statement that “she ain’t got no clip, bud” after Holmes expresses his concern over Damper’s actions with the firearm.
The video below was recorded by someone from the live video, and it’s almost certain that it’s been pulled from the social media site since. The uncensored version of the video can be seen here, but we remind you that it is extremely graphic.
We have decided to provide the link above to the uncensored video because it shows, rather graphically, how dangerous it is to treat firearms as toys. Whether this firearm was possessed legally or not is unknown at this time, but it’s still a strong testament to how dangerous they are in the hands of people who have no respect for them.
Damper and the passenger got out of the vehicle immediately after the shot was fired, and police arrived on the scene 5 minutes later.
Miraculously, Holmes did not die from the gunshot and is recovering in the hospital. His condition at this time is not known.
Damper faces a charge of aggravated assault with reckless serious bodily injury. Previously, she was only charged with “tampering with evidence after police said she tried to wipe off her hands before testing for gun powder residue.”
This 25-year-old wanted to show off on Facebook for whatever reason, and it almost cost a man his life.
We hope that Holmes is able to make as full a recovery as possible.
The takeaway: Don’t be a moron like Damper and if you are ever near someone who is acting irresponsibly with a firearm, you should leave immediately.
