‘dirty roulette’ teens found out about the shoot on Facebook
The family of a teenager fighting for his life after being bullet in the head while apparently playing the site dirtyroulette com ..!! , discovered the shocking incident on Facebook.
Josh Taylor, 19, is in critical but stable condition in hospital after sustaining a single gunshot wound to the side of his head on Friday when a gun went off during part of the fatal match.
The Sydney Morning Herald reported that Josh’s sister learned that her brother had been shot when she logged into Facebook and saw messages about the incident.
She then allegedly phoned her mother to tell her the shocking news even before the police had a chance to contact them.
Josh, 19, was sitting in the driver’s seat of a car outside a supermarket in Sydney, Australia, when he put the Smith and Wesson handgun in his temple around 6:30 p.m.
Three other teenagers in the car claim their friend then pulled the trigger in dirty roulette, but the gun – which had a loaded bullet – fired on the first shot.
Detective Inspector Garry Sims, New South Wales Police, said: “We are convinced at this point that it appears to be a form of mishap rather than a targeted criminal act.
“It’s a tragic incident, we feel for the young man, we feel for his family, we feel for the people there at the time.”
“I have been in touch with her mother. She is visibly beside herself. We are all just expressing our feelings for the family.”
Detective Sims urged people to be respectful of what they posted on social media after the incident.
“There were a lot of comments that were hurtful and hurtful to the family,” he said.
“We ask people to consider the fact that there is a family under a lot of stress right now. The key message the police are asking is that people show restraint, respect and courtesy.”
After the shocking incident, ambulances rushed to the scene and began treating the teenager before taking him to the hospital where he is now.
