Alan McWilliams was found seriously injured at his home on Saturday night after he reportedly played a game of Russian roulette with a handgun “for a laugh.” The father of three was rushed to the hospital in Glasgow, Scotland, but doctors were unable to save him. He died on Sunday at the age of 41.
“He was playing Russian roulette with a pal and the gun went off,” said a neighbor of McWilliams. “It has been the talk of the town for the past two days. He wasn’t alone in the house. We didn’t hear a gun shot at the time, but knew something had happened when the police arrived. There were armed cops and a helicopter overhead.”
McWilliams’ partner, Andrea Henderson, was unable to hold it together and broke down in tears when talking about what had happened to the father of her children, reports The Sun. “I am devastated,” she sobbed. “It is a hard time just now. I can’t believe this has happened.”
Police are making inquiries into exactly what occurred on Saturday night. The death is still being treated as unexplained as detectives wait for the results of a post mortem.
A spokeswoman for the police said last night: “Detectives are carrying out extensive inquiries following the death of a man in Johnstone at the weekend. Emergency services attended and the 41-year-old man was taken to the Southern General Hospital. Unfortunately, the man died in hospital on Sunday. A post mortem examination will be carried out later today to establish the exact circumstances of the death and a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal. Officers are currently treating the death as unexplained and inquiries are continuing.”
Tributes have been placed outside McWilliams' house by friends and family. One note left with a little brown teddy bear read: “Best papa in the whole world.” Another note said: “Best dad in the world. Forever my angel xxx.” A third, from a friend named Tam, said: “Even in death, best mate forever.”
