Mesa shooting: Man who gets shot, takes a selfie before calling for help


A 20-year-old man, Isaac Martinez has got everyone talking after news emerged that he was shot in the shoulder but first took a selfie and posted it on Snapchat before he sought help.

According to reports: Martinez was in the wrong place at the wrong time when he was approached by suspect Ryan E. Giroux on Wednesday morning.  The alleged criminal asked for his carkeys but when Martinez said no, he was shot.

Bleeding profusly, Martinez did what every normal person in that situation would do- he took a selfie showing the blood dripping from the shoulder through his white uniform, and posted it on the app.

Thanfully he got to the hospital on time, we know this because he posted another selfie from his hospital bed.


On Facebook he took his time to recount the event:

“So im home and well! I have no complicated injuries and should heal fine,” Martinez’s Facebook posts says. “I had a bullet hit me from behind and go through my shoulder and out my coller area. Any higher or lower it coulda hit a artery, or shatter my shoulder blade. It was a miracle hit.”


“He (the suspect) came in and demanded my keys for a getaway car. Of course i said no, and next was him pulling out a gun and cocking it. Soon as i saw it i started stepping back. And yelled for everyone to step back and get down. Next thing i knew i was hitting the ground, got up as fast as i fell, and ran out the back exit. At the same time the assailant had started taking off in my chef instructors car. When i saw he had gone. I noticed the cops and fire trucks down the street and went there.”
