A man was arrested Sunday in the shooting death of a 19-year-old man in Hialeah.

Hialeah Police charged Josue Sanchez, 20, with manslaughter after he mishandled his gun and shot Lazaro Martinez in the hip at a parking lot at 3051 W. 76th St. Friday night.

Police said Sanchez, Martinez and a third person were smoking marijuana in Sanchez’s car when Sanchez let Martinez look at his gun.

Sanchez told police he removed the magazine and the round in the chamber from the Jimenez Arms 9 mm and then placed the magazine back before handing over the gun.

Martinez and the other person then took photos while posing with the firearm.

When he took the gun back, Sanchez pulled the trigger, shooting Martinez in the hip. He told police he did not know the gun had a round in the chamber.

Can you add any more Gun Safety violations to this event? The victim died even though they took him to a hospital not far from the location.

Mixing guns with pot (or any intoxicant) and stupid will never yield good results.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.
