A man died Saturday from head injuries he sustained about two weeks ago while playing Russian roulette.

Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll said Jamel Anthony Sr., 24, of 1911 W. Proctor St. was under the influence of marijuana the evening of Jan. 8 when he began playing with a loaded revolver at 1527 S. Westmoreland Ave.

Anthony was in the kitchen of the house with several friends when he held the gun to his head and pulled the trigger about 8:40 p.m. The gun did not go off the first time and he pulled the trigger again, shooting himself in the head, according to police reports.

(NB. Really. How many times can you pull the trigger and call it roulette still? We are skeptical in this instance.)
