Posted: Updated:

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.
