    Socorro man dies in apparent accidental shooting - El Paso Times

    Socorro man dies in apparent accidental shooting
    A 33-year-old man apparently accidentally shot and killed himself early Wednesday in Socorro while showing a 9-mm handgun to a teenage relative.

    Socorro spokesman Dave Garcia said the accident took place around 3:35 a.m. in a home in the 10600 block of Lippert Drive.


    The victim, Alberto Ricardo Arce, an unemployed security guard, had just come home and was alone in the living room with the relative when he pointed the gun at his own head.

    The gun went off and killed Arce, Garcia said.

    No wonder he was unemployed......

    The dumb ones are weeding themselves out now. I really have no complaint.
    Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!

    Excellent, but expensive, firearms safety lesson for the teenager.

    Lovely 'reporting'.

    An out of work security guard with a former gun charge. Adiós, muchacho.

    Yeah the gun went, off being awake at 3:35 a.m. it was in a real bad mood; so, it went off and busted a cap in that fools dome.
