SHERWOOD, Ore. – Police in the Portland suburb of Sherwood say a teen boy has died of a gunshot wound and investigators believe he may have been playing a game of Russian roulette.

Sherwood Police Captain Ty Hanlon says the boy died early Monday morning at a mobile home in Sherwood. The teen was dead by the time emergency responders arrived.

KOIN-TV reports that based on witness interviews, police believe that the teen showed up to the mobile home with gun and fatally shot himself while playing Russian roulette.
