In the video, Holmes, Damper and another man are sitting in a auto as they broadcasted live to Facebook.

Houston news station KHOU reports that Devyn Holmes, 26, suffered a gunshot wound to the head after a gun discharged while he was in the driver's seat of a parked vehicle with two of his friends early Easter Sunday morning.

Then, the Facebook Live video shows Damper pulling the safety off and cocking the gun, pointing it towards Holmes. The other man who was present in the vehicle during the shooting will not be formally charged with any crimes. She's heard telling Holmes 'Say something, bitch.' After that, the gun goes off, hitting Holmes in the head. A few seconds later, the woman is seen pointing a gun at the camera and waving it around in the vehicle.

The shooting was reported about 2:30 a.m. Sunday in the parking lot of a Valero gas station at Almeda Road and Southmore Boulevard.

His friend yelled in the background saying that the gun had no clip. Seconds later, the gun goes off and Holmes falls limp, according to Click2Houston.




Damper, who allegedly attempted to wipe off the gun residue on her hands, reportedly told police that she was unaware that the handgun had been loaded. Damper is now facing charges of tampering or fabricating evidence.

A horrific video of a Texas man getting shot in the head has gone viral.

Holmes was rushed to Ben Taub Hospital, where he remains on life support in critical condition, according to police.

Houston police told KPRC-TV that they were investigating the incident as an accidental shooting but it will ultimately be for a grand jury to decide the outcome.
