A 29-year-old man from Oslo showed his friends how to play Russian roulette last week. Pulling the trigger for a second time, he shot himself in the head.

“He told his friends that he wanted to play Russian roulette and held the gun to his head as he pulled the trigger,”  said police inspector Hanne Kristin Rohde from the Oslo Police District, who just confirmed the death on Tuesday.

She added that the man “was dead when we arrived at the scene at the same time as the ambulance.”

Three people were in the apartment when the fatal shot was fired.

Police are looking into the incident, but are not investigating it as a murder,  reports newspaper Verdens Gang.
