TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - A Tuscaloosa teenager is dead after shooting himself while playing a game of Russian roulette.

Tuscaloosa Police Chief Ken Swindle said the 17-year-old male suffered the fatal gunshot wound Tuesday night while playing the game. The boy's name was withheld.

Swindle said no foul play was involved.

A similar incident in late February claimed the life of a 15-year-old boy in Northport.
