A Michigan teen fatally shot himself during a game of Russian roulette, police said.
The victim — identified in local reports as a 17-year-old who attended Bentley High School — was found unresponsive at a home in Burton on Oct. 24, but police finally announced the cause of death this week.
“After interviews and the collection of evidence, it was determined that some occupants of the house were playing Russian roulette,” Burton police said in a statement. “The victim suffered a single self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.”
The cops said they issued an update on the fatal shooting due to the “large amount of public interest” in the incident.
Officers found several stolen items during a search of the home where the teen was shot — and investigators believe some of its occupants committed several burglaries and thefts nearby. Some of the stolen items have been recovered and returned to their owners, police said.
Detectives working the case submitted their findings to Genesee County prosecutors on Nov. 18 for consideration of criminal charges, department officials said.
“This is still an active case,” police said. “No further information can be shared at this time.”
Cops did not identify the dead teen, but MLive.com cited his obituary indicating that he attended Bentley High School and “loved football and basketball,” which he regularly played with his younger sister and brother.
“[He] enjoyed making videos with his older sister and was a great brother,” the teen’s obit continued.
A message seeking comment from Burton police Wednesday was not immediately returned.
