His friend – who has not been named – told police officers that Norte had called him to come over to his house to drink alcohol and listen to music. 

The man, who is also 20, agreed and when he arrived at the house, he said Norte already had the .38 calibre revolver in his hand. 

He added that they both played Russian roulette, taking it turns to fire the gun with one bullet in the chamber.

He said he received the gun from Norte twice before the student pulled the trigger again and shot himself in the head.

The friend, who had known Norte for over six years, added that they had played the game at least four times in the past.

They added that the victim died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound and it is unclear if they are investigating the incident further.

Russian roulette, despite the deadly consequences of playing the game, has left a series of victims – many of whom are teenagers – in its wake. 

In 2015, Brazilian teenager Ana Julia Lima Clemente died after shooting herself with her uncle’s gun during a game of Russian roulette. 

Clemente, 15, took the .38 revolver out and started fooling around with a 14-year-old friend at her home in Criciuma in the southern state of Santa Catarina.

She held the gun at her own head and pulled the trigger twice but nothing happened. But the third time she did it she was killed instantly.

A year later, Austin Barcarcel, a teenager from Virginia, US, fatally shot himself while playing a Russian roulette-style game with a loaded gun at his 18th birthday party.
