A 17-year-old who shot himself in the head in a game of Russian roulette Friday has died from his wounds, Pinellas County sheriff's deputies said.

Thorin R. Montgomery died at Bayfront Medical Center early Sunday morning, deputies said.

Detectives said that the teen and three of his friends were playing a game of Russian roulette at Montgomery's home on Friday evening. He was the first of his friends to have a turn at the game when the gun fired into his head, deputies said.

The medical examiner's office will conduct an autopsy to determine cause and manner of death.
