LARGO, Florida - A Largo teen has died from his injuries after shooting himself while playing Russian Roulette.
Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives say 17-year-old Thorin Montgomery and three teenaged friends were on the back porch of his house along 111th Way North in Largo Friday night, playing with a .38 caliber revolver.
Thorin was the first of his friends to have a turn when the gun fired, shooting him in the head.
He was airlifted to Bayfront Medical Center where he later died.
A neighbor, who doesn't want to be identified, told 10 News he saw an ambulance arrive at the house and then neighbors started running toward there as well. He describes the scene as "crazy." He says he's surprised to hear the teens were playing such a dangerous game.
"I'm shocked to find out they're stupid enough to play that game," said the neighbor. "Kids nowadays, with them playing with guns the way they do, there's no reason for that."
The investigation is ongoing. Detectives will not say right now where the teens got the gun.
