The 19-year-old student of Sydney, shot himself in the head while playing Russian Roulette in a parked car with three friends on Friday.

Josh Taylor was in the driver’s seat of the car when he shot himself with the gun that was not registered. Taylor was airlifted to the Westmead Hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery.

Police said that no charges will be filed as this was a game and not a criminal act. Taylor posted a picture of himself holding what appeared to be a firearm on Facebook.
