Slumped over, and switching back and forth between Spanish and English, Hernandez awaited questioning. Meanwhile, officers work to piece together the events of the night.
Security footage shows what witnesses inside a Planet Fitness on 28th street saw as Hernandez ran inside, wielding his Semi-automatic gun, and telling employees to lock the door, claiming ‘they’re gonna kill us all.’
Reports show Hernandez and his partner, John Salazar, ate at downtown restaurant before making their way south.
Hernandez was sentenced to 135 days in jail and 2 years of probation after pleading "no contest". he also lost his federal badge.
