Donnie McLendon Shoots Himself While Playing Russian Roulette

Donnie McLendon

Daniel McKee and Thomas Rady told St. Pete Police officers that they were hanging out, drinking and smoking some pot when a home invader broke into their place in the 1100 block of 32nd Avenue North.

They told cops that this home invader shot their friend, Donnie McLendon, 26, in the head and that Rady heroically "bumped" the perp and somehow forced him to drop his gun. Seeing how a guy can make him drop his weapon by simply bumping into him, the invader fled.

Oh, and by the way, none of that story is true because the three men were actually playing a game of Russian roulette and Donnie lost.

It didn't take long for McKee and Rady to confess to investigators that they, in fact, decided to go all The Deer Hunter on each other and that their friend had shot himself in the head with a .44 caliber pistol loaded with one bullet.

The game apparently didn't last long, because they told cops that McLendon was the third to take a turn. And when he did, the gun did that thing that they're supposed to do when you pull the trigger.

After McLendon shot himself, McKee, his girlfriend, and Rady put him in their car and drove him to the hospital.

McLendon remains in critical condition at Tampa General Hospital.

No charges have been filed, but police are still investigating the incident.

Perhaps next time, these dudes may wanna whip out the Parcheesi. It's superfun, and the board is pretty trippy to look at when stoned. Most important, however, there's literally no chance of blowing your brains out when playing it.

A suspect has been arrested on charges of manslaughter in this case when Donnie passed away on tues authorities were able to determine he did not shoot himself, in fact was shot by another individual. This individual has been booked into the Pinellas county jail.

Well, I guess there's something to the old adage, "guns don't kill people, bullets do."

Just for the record, I happen to know Donnie very well, and as I agree with the fact that this is the most ridiculous and outrageous "game" I have ever heard of, I think this article is very insensitive and cruel. I do not think that the way this article is written is appropriate especially because Donnie passed away today!!!

It's really hard to feel sorry for Mr. McLendon since it is his own stupid fault. The world can do without his contribution to the gene pool. It doesn't appear he was contributing much to society anyway.

This of course, is a ridiculous story, but every time I click NT links, I am still amazed, perplexed and tickled at the photo on the bottom left, of the anus tattoo girl. Please leave it there forever and ever.

I have to believe this sort of thing has happened previously in Russia.. who writes these articles, 95% of the time i feel like im reading a middle school essay, poorly written at that. please find better writers, or maybe pay them and theyll do better. - Jimmy Loud, exec director and chief editor at !loud! magazine

I am also thinking the "scissor route" may have been a better option.
