PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) - Police in Pueblo say that a 17-year-old boy is dead after playing Russian roulette with a revolver-type pistol.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports (https://bit.ly/1ONhSpO ) that a number of juveniles were at the address at the time of the incident Monday night.

The witnesses told police that the victim was playing Russian roulette with a revolver-type pistol and a single bullet in the cylinder. The other teens say he played the game over a period of time until the weapon fired and he received the fatal wound.

The boy was not immediately named. He was still breathing when police arrived late Monday, but the boy died at the hospital. It was not immediately clear where the gun came from or whose home it was.
