MIDLAND - A Midland man is behind bars after his live in girlfriend told cops he held a gun to her head and threatened to kill her saying that the bullets had her name on them.

33-year-old Cesar Hernandez was arrested Tuesday for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

The woman and her small child were able to escape from Hernandez and go to police.

Hernandez is reportedly a member of the Barrio Azteca Gang and has three previous assault charges.

Authorities say he also owes money to the Juarez Drug Cartel.

Hernandez is being held on a $100,000 bond.
