HOUSTON — This is taking Russian roulette to a different level.
A man who donned a bullet-proof vest at a house party and dared another party-goer to shoot him, was killed after the round passed through his chest, police said.
Investigators say it was not immediately clear if the fatal shot passed through the body armor or missed it entirely.
“It is unusual that people would put on bulletproof vest and play with guns at a party, but these things happen sometimes,” Houston Police Homicide Sgt. Mark Hollbrook told KTRK-TV.
The unidentified victim was declared dead at the scene. Police are searching for the gunman who fled the scene. Investigators say there were six-to-eight people at the party at the time.
