21-year-old Anthony Martin of Pueblo, Colorado, died early Sunday after an accidental gunshot wound to the head.
Martin and several friends were playing Russian roulette in a home when the gun discharged and killed him.
Pueblo police Sgt. Eric Bravo told the Pueblo Chieftain that no one has been charged in the incident.
Russian roulette is a potentially lethal game of chance in which one of a revolver's chambers is loaded with a cartridge, the chamber is rotated at random, and the gun's trigger is pulled.
A revolver with six chambers results in a shooter having a 1/6 chance of dying.
