A tragic ending to a Sunday evening gathering of friends in Omaha. 19 year old Joseph Morolla died from a self inflicted gunshot wound to the head while playing Russian roulette.
DouglasCounty Attorney Don Kleine says this is totally senseless act. He says, “Whenever you are talking about a loaded firearm in any capacity isn’t any kind of a game.”
Kleine says Morolla was with several friends inside an apartment near 120th and Pacific. Several witnessed the deadly gunshot to the head.
Kleine says 18 year old Erik Valencia was present at the time and took the gun from the apartment after the shooting. He has been charged with tampering with evidence.
