Police: Teen charged with murder after game of Russian roulette with gun

NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) – Police say a Natchez teen is dead and another charged with murder after a deadly gun game early Sunday morning.

Police Detective Jerry Ford said the shooting happened around 12:30 a.m., when a group of juveniles were playing a game of dominoes.

At some point, Ford said the 17-year-old suspect decided to play with a revolver, placing a single bullet in the cylinder and spinning it before starting a game of Russian roulette.

Police say the shooter aimed the gun at 17-year-old Justin Williams Jr. Ford said when the gun went off, Williams was hit in the hand and chest.

Adams County Coroner James Lee pronounced Williams dead at 1:10 a.m. Sunday.

Ford said the shooting remains under investigation.
