An officer in France has died of a gunshot wound in what was described as "a tragedy due to a mistake in handling a loaded firearm."

According to CNN, the victim and the suspect were playing with their guns Sunday when the incident occurred.

Neither officer has been identified by name.

The incident is reminiscent of the alleged "Russian roulette" death of 24-year-old Katlyn Alix of the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.
