Police in Sherwood, Oregon say a teenage died Monday morning from a fatal gunshot wound while playing Russian Roulette. Police responded to call originating from the 23000 block of Sw Main Street, inside Carriage Park Estates mobile home center, around 4 a.m. reporting a shooting.
When police arrived, the teen was found dead with a gunshot wound with several other people in the home. Witnesses say the teen was the only one playing the game, Russian Roulette. Captain Ty Hanlon, a spokesman for Sherwood Police, said the teenager had brought a 3.57 revolver to the house.
"At some point, he took it out and began to play - as we know it - Russian roulette. Spinning the cylinder of the gun and placing it to his head. He did this all on his own accord and there were no other people that were involved in the incident as far as that goes. One of the rounds did fire which, which killed him," Hanlon said.
A woman who lives across the street from the home where the shooting occurred talked with one of the home's residents after police left saying, "I asked him, 'Is everything okay? Anything we can do?' He seemed really shaken up and he said the boy just came out and shot himself," said the neighbor.
The teen was not a resident of the home and the homeowner was not there at the time of his death. The victim lives in Marion County and police notified his family of his death New Year's Day.
