COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police in Ohio say an 18-year-old man killed himself while playing Russian roulette.
The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/1G0lHCb) that Rashaun McCrae died Monday night, and it took Whitehall police several days to confirm his cause of death and investigate the accounts of friends in the house at the time.
Police reports say an 18-year-old friend told officers that McCrae was sitting in a kitchen spinning the cylinder of a revolver and asked him if he wanted to play Russian roulette. The friend declined, left the room and heard a gunshot.
A 23-year-old woman told police that McCrae showed her and a friend the gun, loaded it with one bullet, held it to his head and fired.
One 911 caller said she heard shouts of "Why would you do this?"
