Police are investigating the death of a man who had apparently been playing Russian roulette.
Emergency services were called to a house on Hogg Avenue in Johnstone, Renfrewshire, on Saturday following a "firearms" incident.
Alan McWilliams, 41, was found seriously injured and taken to the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow for treatment but died on Sunday.
A neighbour told the Scottish Sun newspaper that Mr McWilliams had been "playing Russian roulette with a pal and the gun went off".

Wow. If this story is accurate then we have another contender for a Darwin Award. Incredible.

Why spend tax payers money on this? he was playing Russian roulette with a pal and the gun went off...end off!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Man dies playing 'Russian roulette'? Perhaps it's not one of Rihanna's more upbeat songs, but I didn't think it was that bad.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

I guess it could be an un-licensed, un-registered firearm or he may have been killed and it was made to look like “Russian Roulette” gone wrong.

This game never appealed to me, I think I will stick to "Hungry Hippo’s" although you can get a nasty nip on your fingers playing that… I guess all games are played with an element of risk.

i would imagine it is unlicensed, I do hope that anyone with a license to own a gun does not do anything as irresponsible as this!
Could well be murder, still early doors to tell. if the gun does turn out to be the victims, and the lab can not tell if it was murder or an accident, then this could well be an unsolved case.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Why should people lose their lives like that? That's just...not logical

Αν ανάμεσα σ’ όλον τον κόσμο,
νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.
