A 21-year-old is dead after unknowingly taking a selfie with a loaded firearm.

The veterinarian, Oscar Otero Aguilar, was reportedly drinking in Mexico City when he pointed the gun at his face for a picture for Facebook.  

"But the 0.45 caliber weapon discharged and he was hit in the temple by the bullet," reports the New York Daily News.

"Neighbors heard the gunshot and called cops," further reports the New York Daily News. "Officers arrived to find him still alive, but they lost a battle to save him and he was declared dead at the scene soon after."

Abner Campos Vives, a friend of Aguilar's, was detained for questioning. Another friend who goes by the name "El Paco" fled the city after the assumed accident.

An autopsy is scheduled for this week.
