The victim was identified by local media as 21- year-old Oscar Otero Aguilar.

Before the incident, Otero Aguilar had been drinking with two of his friends in northern Mexico City.

Authorities called in said Otero Aguilar was shot in the head, Proceso reported.

‘I heard a gunshot, and then I heard somebody screaming and realized somebody had been hurt.

I called the police straight away and when they arrived they found that he was still alive,’ neighbor

Otero Aguilar was dead at the scene and an autopsy is scheduled, according to Excelsior.

The Ministry of Public Security told Proceso that Otero Aguilar’s death appeared to be an accident.

The selfie was meant to go on Facebook, the Ministry said.
