A 23-year-old Florida man was killed this weekend, shot in the chest by his own cousin. Here's what happened. Joaquin Mendez, 23, put on the vest they were testing out -- an old bulletproof vest -- and he ended up losing his life.
The 23 year old wanted to see if the old bulletproof vest "still worked" and so he asked his cousin, 24-year-old Alexandro Garibaldi to help him test the vest.
Police say Alexandro pulled out a gun and responded, "Let's see." Police claim that Alexandro fired a single shot into his cousin's chest. The bullet passed through the vest and entered Joaquin's chest.
Officers found Mendez outside the house with a gunshot wound in his chest.
Mendez died at the hospital.
