Yesterday, 21 year-old Mexico City resident Oscar Otero Aguilar died after accidentally shooting himself while posing for a selfie with a borrowed gun, reported Mexican newspaper Excelsior.
"I heard a gunshot, and then I heard somebody screaming and realized somebody had been hurt," neighbor Manfredo Paez Paez told Bakersfield, Calif.-based ABC affiliate KERO.
Aguilar died on his way to the hospital. Aguilar's friend who was present, Omar Abner Campos Vives, was arrested, and another friend, called "El Paco," tried to run, Mexican newspaper Proceso reported.
A previous version of this story said that it is illegal for Mexican citizens to own guns. As commenters astutely pointed out, this is incorrect.
