I most certainly require medical attention, but first let me take a selfie.

One way to document a traumatic ordeal is to Snapchat it and send it to your friends. Isaac Martinez, who was one of the people shot in the Mesa, Arizona shooting spree on Wednesday, took that route.

Arizona Republic reporter Yihyun Jeong tweeted out Martinez's selfies, one of which appears to be taken right after being shot in the shoulder. "I just got shot," it reads. The other features a smiling Martinez presumably in the hospital.

Check it out:

On Wednesday, a man reportedly shot a man and two women at a motel. The man died at the scene and the two women have been taken to the hospital. He then went to a restaurant near East Valley Institute of Technology and stole a car, shooting an EVIT student in the process. That was Martinez.

He then went to an apartment complex, broke into a room, and shot another man. Authorities say he'll survive.

Police eventually caught up to him and arrested him at a vacant condo building. They've identified him as 41-year-old Ryan Elliot Giroux. According to CBS News, Giroux is a white supremacist with a "lengthy criminal history."
