18-year-old Michale Marin of Vero Beach, Florida was hanging out at his apartment on a Friday night with friends. He started telling them about his new 9mm handgun. He had the gun a few weeks, but hadn't fired it yet. Marin brought the gun out, showing off how it worked, passing it around. When he took the gun back, thinking the safety was on, he squeezed the trigger. The gun fired. The bullet hit his friend, passing through his abdomen and intestines. He is being treated at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center.
Marin was arrested and charged with misdemeanor culpable negligence and improper exhibition of a weapon. Bail was set at $2000.
