A 16-year-old Mohave County boy died Sunday after shooting himself while playing Russian Roulette.

Several of his friends witnessed the shooting, police say.

According to the Mohave County Sheriff's Office, the teen, Kevin Jervey Hudgens, and several other kids were in a travel trailer in Hudgens' backyard when he fatally shot himself in the head with .22-caliber handgun.

He was then airlifted to Sunrise Medical Center in Las Vegas, where medical crews tried to save his life, but were unable to do so.

Hudgens died from his injuries.

An MCSO spokeswoman tells New Times none of the other kids were playing the potentially fatal game -- they were just watching Hudgens.

As far as the spokeswoman knows, no charges are pending against the boy's parents, or any of the kids who witnessed the shooting.

GGun control starts with children teaching them the dangers and uses will prevent these types of gun play guns don't kill people like pencils don't misspell words and cars don't drive drunk

You guys are pathetic. You didn't know him, nor what he's gone through. He wasn't even playing Russian Roulette. It was an accident, a tragic one at that. How disrespectful of you to go and post these comments when you know nothing. Learn some respect.

Really? All of that? Dag. I had no idea. My mother thinks I look very handsome. Now I know I am not handsome Mom. In fact, I may be a "gaping stinking dripping asshole" and you are a "diseased skank cunt" and well, you may be going to hell...

Yet another really good reason why restrictions need to be put on guns. This whole thing could have been avoided...

In an ideal world, yes. But restrictions are only as good as enforcement, as we both know.  Had the gun been locked (trigger lock) and in a safe the opportunity might not have happened. Tragic as it is....

Tommy, this is off topic but I want to apologize if my rant on mental illness offended you, It's a very sore subject with me because of the disgraceful care the mentally ill receive in this state and the level of ignorance displayed by people when it comes to understanding how mental illness affects people.

Tommy, most people don't understand gun safety so their idea is to ban all guns. 

I have taught my kids how to respects guns.  They understand they aren't toys.
