KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) — A western Arizona teen has been charged with a felony stemming from the death of another teen who shot himself in the head while playing Russian roulette.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office says 15-year-old Edward Charles Angelo Jr., of Dolan Springs, is charged with being a prohibited possessor of a gun, a felony because he previously was convicted of felony burglary and theft counts.


Investigators say Angelo took a .22-caliber gun to a Kingman home on Sept. 25 and a group of friends watched as 16-year-old Kevin Hudgens played Russian roulette, a game in which the player puts a single round in a gun, spins the cylinder, aims it at his head and pulls the trigger.

It's unclear whether Angelo has an attorney.
