RIP. I was going to make a joke about it always being #AzzEatingSZN but I think it might be too soon. It seems like there are two sides to this story already and the story has changed.
A Las Vegas man arrested for fatally shooting his estranged wife told police he was performing a sex act on her when his gun accidentally fired, according to a police report.
John Fitzgerald Gonzalez, 53, called police early Thursday to report that his wife – who filed for divorce just seven weeks ago – was shot in the stomach during a struggle over a gun. Responding cops soon found Nicole Nguyen, 41, on the floor in the garage of her home bleeding from a gunshot wound, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Gonzalez first told police he was picking up the couple’s 6-year-old son for school when Nguyen pulled out a gun, sparking a struggle that ended with the gun accidentally discharging. But an arrest report cited by the newspaper indicates Gonzalez claimed the gun went off while performing a sex act on his estranged wife — a version of events detectives found “implausible,” according to the report.
“It is unknown if the sex was actually consensual or if it was coerced by force or threats of force,” the arrest report reads.
Gonzalez said he took two guns with him to the home that morning because he had suspicions that the meeting could be an ambush. Gonzalez said Nguyen reached for the gun during the sex act when he was down on the ground, causing it to fire once as he held the gun and pulled the trigger as Nguyen pulled it toward her.
“Detectives found his excuse for having brought the gun and keeping it by him during sex implausible,” the police report read.
