LARGO, FLORIDA (BNO NEWS) -- A U.S. teenager, who was critically injured earlier this week while playing a game of Russian Roulette with friends, has died at a hospital in central Florida, police said on Sunday.
The incident happened at approximately 7:30 p.m. local time on Friday when 17-year-old Thorin R. Montgomery was playing a game of Russian Roulette with his friends at his home in Largo, a city about 19 miles (30 kilometers) west of Tampa. First responders found him suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.
Detectives said Montgomery was playing the game with three of his friends, ages 19, 18 and 16, in the back porch of the house. "Montgomery was the first of his friends to have a turn at the game when the gun discharged and he received a gunshot wound to the head," the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

Stupid ass... I do feel sorry for his friends. Tough on the conscious for life..
They chose poorly.
Friends don’t play Russian Roulette.
So who won? They quit playing?
Don’t teens just play Beer Hunter anymore???
The stupid... it kills. RIP.
We have a Darwin Award Winner Here!
Did anyone tell these Idiots that they were suppose to use A Revolver with only one bullet chambered instead of a Semiautomatc?
If any one out there thinks that the threat from the USSR is over and that the Russians are our friends, they just need to read this story.
“...instead of a Semiautomatc”?
...Of course they knew. That’s why they made him go first.
As Norm MacDonald said, “I will never forgive the Russians for perverting Marxism and the game of Roulette.”
If your last words are "Hold my beer. Watch this."
we're going to write "Died stupid" on your tombstone.
This is what happens when you have widespread gun control (not that this yahoo would not have died by something else just as stupid).
Parents who own weapons always teach their children from the time the kids can walk the two prime rules of weapons (listed here for lurkers — every FReeper knows this already):
1. Always assume it is loaded
2. Never point it at something you do not wish to destroy (that includes your head)
another gun reported as self-firing. the kid shot himself deliberately, so say so.
Really, kids. Not a good “game” to play. Really.
Blame marijuana and other drugs. He looks like a doper. Dope makes you into a maggot infested dope.
Maybe they were using Wolf ammo?
