Kurdish youth 'roleplaying' PUBG accidentally kills friend with shotgun
ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – A young Kurdish male on Friday accidentally killed one of his friends in Erbil Province when he pulled the trigger of a shotgun that, unbeknownst to him, was loaded.
The two young men were part of a group of six youths from the town of Pirmam picnicking at a nearby resort area outside Warte sub-district, local police told Kurdistan 24. While staying at a house belonging to one of their relatives, they found the firearm.
"As they were getting ready to return home, the youths said they should roleplay PUBG," Soran police spokesperson Sadoun Hawdiyani told Kurdistan 24. "And then, one of the friends asked another to hold the gun like PUBG and had someone else shoot a video."
