Say What Now? Florida Man Shot & Killed by His Cousin While Testing a Bulletproof Vest [Video]


23-year-old Joaquin Mendez  was shot and killed after asking his cousin a question about the bulletproof vest he was wearing.

According to witnesses, Joaquin wondered out loud whether the vest still worked. His cousin Alexandro Garibaldi, overheard and said “let’s see” — right before he pulled out a gun and shot him.

Officers found Joaquin outside the house with a gunshot wound in his chest. He later died at a hospital.

According to the report, Alexandro initially told officers he found his wounded cousin after hearing a gunshot. Police say the vest was found inside the house with a gunshot.

Alexandro was arrested and charged with manslaughter.
