Ex-boyfriend storms into ex-GF's house, shoots her new lover, and accidentally impales himself on fence while fleeing
According to Argentinian local media, a gunman attempted to kill his ex-girlfriend's new beau and then shot himself accidentally while trying to climb over a fence.
Anibal Fernandez is seen draped over a fence in the town of General Pinedo, in the Argentinian province of Chaco, in a number of graphic photos released to the media by local police, reported Daily Mail.
Fernandez had allegedly gone to the house of his ex-girlfriend Carina Carabajal, wielding a .22-caliber rifle in order to confront her new lover Daniel Campos, who had apparently been living there, reported local media.
An enraged Fernandez stormed into the house and shot Campos in his arms and chest four times after a heated argument, officials said.
When he tried to run from the house after committing the act, Carabajal reportedly heard a gunshot outside the building.
She immediately rushed out to see what happened. To her horror, she found the body of Fernandez hanging from the top of a metal fence that surrounds the building.
His blood was dripping on the floor and had formed a pool underneath.
According to reports that emerged, Fernandez died almost instantly, but miraculously, Campos was rushed to the local hospital for emergency treatment and survived.
As of the moment, Campos is making a steady recovery from his gunshot wounds in the Las Brenas Hospital.
Law enforcement authorities screened Fernandez's lifeless body from public display by setting up a cordon around the hideous scene.
The gruesome case of the sour ex-boyfriend is currently under investigation by authorities in the nearby city of Las Brenas.
