PRAIRIEVILLE -- Six people were booked on drug and weapons charges after a 16-year-old apparently shot and killed himself during a game of Russian roulette, authorities said.
Jacob White, of Prairieville, and the older friends were playing the game and smoking marijuana when White apparently shot himself Wednesday at White's home, said Ascension Parish sheriff's Lt. Paul Robert.
While White and his friends smoked the drug, they passed two handguns around. Robert said White took one of the two guns, and loaded it with at least one live round and put the weapon to his head. It discharged after he pulled the trigger several times, Robert said.
The other six left; one youth's parents reported the shooting, Robert said. Investigators took two guns and drug paraphernalia from the house, he said.
