A boy died in Jackson, Mississippi after apparently playing a game of Russian Roulette, according to police.
Markelle Noah, 12, was found in an abandoned house in North Jackson on Friday, Jackson Police Department Deputy Chief Deric Hearn said in a statement according to WLBT. Noah had been reported missing before his body was found in the house, police said.
Russian Roulette is a dangerous and deadly game in which a player will place one bullet into the chamber of a revolver and spins the cylinder before pointing the gun at either themself or an opponent and pulling the trigger. The game was popular among members of the Russian Tsarist armies in the 1840s, according to Russia Beyond.
Two minors and one adult who is 21 years old — all unnamed as of November 27 — were arrested in connection with the case, according to police. Police said the two minors are being charged with murder and the 21-year-old is being charged with accessory after the fact of murder.
The Jackson Police Department released minimal information about the investigation and has not released the identity of the adult charged in the case.
