A Florida teenager died Sunday after shooting himself in the head during a game of Russian roulette.
Thorin Montgomery was the first of his friends to take a turn at the deadly game when the .38-caliber revolver discharged Friday evening, according to a local news report.
The 17-year-old was rushed to St. Petersburg’s Bayfront Medical Center where he died two days later.
Montgomery was reportedly playing with three friends, ages 19, 18 and 16, on the back porch of his home. An unidentified neighbor who was outside Montgomery’s home when paramedics arrived said that the scene was “crazy.”
“I'm shocked to find out they're stupid enough to play that game," the neighbor said. "Kids nowadays, with them playing with guns the way they do, there's no reason for that."
Russian roulette is a dangerous game of chance in which players put a single bullet in a revolver, spin the cyclinder, hold the muzzle up to their heads and pull the trigger.
