DALLAS HOSPITAL SHOOTING SUSPECT HAS LENGTHY CRIMINAL HISTORY: POLICE

Hernandez has appeared in Dallas County courts on multiple charges, including a 2012 robbery conviction and a 2009 delinquent conduct.

Hernandez was out on parole for an aggravated assault in 2015 and given special permission from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to go to the hospital to be with his girlfriend for the birth of her baby.

According to an arrest affidavit, Hernandez allegedly began to act strangely and accused his girlfriend of cheating on him.

“The affidavit says Hernandez began looking through the closet and bathroom for anyone else that may be in the room and pulled a gun out of his pants.”

Hernandez then struck his girlfriend in the head multiple times with the gun and began to call and text his family, according to the documents.

The report says he then told his girlfriend, “We are both going to die today,” and, “Whoever comes in this room is going to die with us,” FOX 4 reported.

In a tweet, Dallas Police Department Chief Eddie Garcia called the shooting a “tragedy” and “an abhorrent failure of our criminal justice system.”
