Man dies 'playing Russian roulette'

21 posts in this topic

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.

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.

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.

I actually think this man playing this game was a wise decision,if you are stupid enough to "play" with a loaded weapon at least be smart enough to die when the game is over.

He was playing Russian Roulette, yet the death is "unexplained"!

Maybe I should email Strathclyde Police with my 'putting a loaded gun to your head and pulling the trigger may be detrimental to your health' theory.

This reminds me of a 1980s TV actor named Jon-Erik Hexum. He shot himself in the head on set with a .44 caliber blank/prop pistol. The paper wadding in the blank cartridge had enough force to drive a piece of his skull into his brain.... ooops....
