Dad-of-Three Shoots Himself While Playing 'Russian Roulette'

Alan McWilliams, 41, was said to have been at home with a friend when the lethal gambling game went disastrously wrong.

Emergency services were called to the property in Renfrewshire, Scotland on Saturday following a "firearms" incident.

Mr McWilliams was found seriously injured and taken to the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow for treatment but died the following day.

A neighbour told the local newspaper that Mr McWilliams had been "playing Russian roulette with a pal and the gun went off".

Strathclyde Police said they were treating the death as "unexplained".

A spokesman said: "Detectives are carrying out extensive inquiries following the death of a man in Johnstone at the weekend. Around 8.30pm on Saturday March 2 2013, officers were called to a report of a man with a firearm within a house in Hogg Avenue, Johnstone. Emergency services attended and the 41-year-old man was taken to the Southern General Hospital. Unfortunately, the man died in hospital on Sunday. A post-mortem examination will be carried out later today to establish the exact circumstances of the death and a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal."

Russian roulette involves a player placing a single round in a revolver, spinning the cylinder, placing the muzzle against his head and pulling the trigger.
