CARSON, CA - The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says a 17-year-old boy shot and killed himself early Monday during what they are describing as a game of Russian roulette with other teens.

Deputies responding to a call about a gunshot in an unincorporated area between Los Angeles and Carson found the boy with a wound to the head.

He was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Family members in the apartment at the time of the shooting just after midnight told authorities they did not realize there was a gun nearby. Authorities say they do not expect charges.
