Facebook and Instagram give the opportunity to capture a moment in time through photos to share with “friends” and others that are usually from a fun and/or joyous occasion.  But one Facebook post went horribly wrong and nothing but sadness and tragedy is associated with one family’s last Facebook post.

Savannah Ramirez, 19, and her brother Manuel Ortiz, 22, of Phoenix, Arizona, would normally post pictures to Facebook of themselves throwing up alleged gang signs and just having fun with friends.  But some of the pics are more lethal and this time, tragic.

Ramirez and her brother had been drinking this time and taking a picture with a gun during New Year’s celebrating and the gun went off. Ortiz was instantly killed by one shot to his head.  Someone in the group they were partying with on New Year’s Eve gave them the gun to add to their pictures.

Ramirez may be charged in her brother’s death because she had been drinking.  Check out the report below.  Remember everyone, Facebook posts are not that serious.
