Orlando teen admits to accidentally shooting, killing friend while playing Russian roulette

ORLANDO, Fla. – Police interrogated an 18-year-old for close to an hour and a half before he admitted to accidentally shooting and killing his friend in Orlando.

Witnesses said it was the suspect's idea to play Russian roulette back in July.

Carrevious Davis, 18, keeps his head down most of the time and mumbles very short answers to the detectives in newly released video. Eventually, he’s heard admitting that he did shoot his friend accidentally.

“All I heard was a gun go off,” Davis says in the video. “I just blinked, and I opened my eyes and then I looked, and I see Taty on the ground.”

Davis maintained his innocence for most of the interrogation.

Orlando police questioned him about why he vanished after his friend, Tatyana Semion, was shot at his sister's apartment.

He initially told police he didn't know who shot the 17-year-old.

Witnesses told detectives Davis accidentally shot Semion during a game of Russian roulette, which he suggested they play.

Davis initially told police Semion was shot when he accidentally dropped one of the guns on the floor.

He later changed his story one more time, claiming he did pull the trigger but thought the gun wasn't loaded.

Davis is charged with manslaughter and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

His trial is set for February 2020.
