A 21-year-old man is fighting for his life after a shooting east of Cheyenne Saturday.

Laramie County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Capt. Linda Gesell says deputies were called to the 13000 block of Stewart Road around 1:15 p.m.

Upon arrival, deputies found a man with a gunshot wound to the head.  Gesell says the man was taken to the hospital, but he may not make it.

"Witnesses say he may have been doing some sort of Russian roulette," said Gesell.

"One male left the scene before we arrived," she added.  "We are trying to figure out why he left and who it was."

The incident remains under investigation.
