“You’re making me nervous.”

These were reportedly Devyn Holmes’ last words before he was allegedly shot in the head by his pals, who were playing around with two handguns in a car parked at a petrol station.

According to the New York Post, Devyn (26) from Houston, Texas is now fighting for his life in the hospital.

The moments leading up to the horrifying incident were broadcast on Facebook Live on Easter Sunday.

Devyn could reportedly be heard telling someone they were making him nervous in the video.

“It ain’t got no clip, bud,” another person then answered.

Moments later, the gun went off, hitting Dewyn.

The now-deleted footage also showed him slumped over and covered in blood, The Sun reports.

“Three people were inside the car while Devyn and a woman were playing with two handguns. The gun fired, hitting Devyn in the head,” police told Click2Houston.

A woman has since been charged with tampering with evidence for trying to rub gunshot residue off her hands.

The other man in the car was not charged.
