A game of Russian Roulette turned deadly at a Talkeetna residence early Sunday morning.
State Troopers received a report that a 44-year-old male had suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head while at a cabin near mile 1.8 of the Talkeetna Spur Road. The report came in close to 5 a.m. Sunday morning.
Witnesses reported that the deceased, and another man, had been playing a game similar to Russian Roulette earlier in the evening. Alcohol was a factor. The 5 people involved were highly intoxicated at the time, according to troopers.
Troopers continue to withhold the name of the deceased man until relatives are notified.
(the man was identified as James Campbell of Talkeetna)
