Even though he fled, the police still determined that no charges should be filed. That's how much they love their guns in Georgia and cover for each other's blundering behavior.The .25-caliber bullet struck Morales-Santos in the chin, turned downward and traveled through his throat and into his chest but did not hit any vital organs, Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office Cpl. Ronald Jordan said. Morales-Santos was expected to recover.
“He and two other friends were in a field shooting guns,” Jordan said. “One had fired a full clip and thought the gun was empty and was waving it around. Apparently Fidel Cruz accidentally discharged the gun and struck Eduardo in the chin.”
Although Cruz had taken the clip out of the pistol, apparently a bullet was chambered and had not been fired.
Cruz, who went to the hospital with Morales-Santos, fled when he saw police cars arrive there, Jordan said. Because the stories of the witness and Morales-Santos match, the sheriff’s office does not plan to file charges.
It was only an accident, after all. Forgetting there's a round in the chamber, plus aiming the gun at someone, and pulling the trigger, that's all just one big accident. It could happen to anyone. Right?
