DALLAS HOSPITAL SHOOTING SUSPECT HAS LONG CRIMINAL HISTORY: POLICE

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

Hernandez was on parole for aggravated assault in 2015 and received 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 began acting strangely and accused his girlfriend of cheating on him.

“The affidavit indicates that Hernandez began searching the closet and bathroom for anyone else who might be in the room and pulled a gun out of his pants.”

Hernandez then hit his girlfriend in the head repeatedly with the gun and began calling and texting her family, the documents show.

The report says he then told his girlfriend, “We’re both going to die today” and “Whoever walks into 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.”
