Saint Louis, Missouri (The Weekly Vice) - Kevin Beindorff, a 21-year-old St. Louis man was jailed after he allegedly shot his friend in the head because his friend asked him to.

According to the Saint Louis Metropolitan Police Department, Beindorff was sitting in a vehicle with 18-year-old Matthew Pellegrini Tuesday when the teen allegedly asked to be shot in the head with a revolver that Beindorff was showing off.

Beindorff allegedly raised the gun to Pellegrini's head and shot him at point blank range.

Investigators say Beindorff drove Pellegrini to Saint Louis University Hospital, but to no avail. Pellegrini was pronounced dead at 11:05 on Thursday after he was removed from life support.

Pellegrini's parents described their son as a prankster, and stated that they believe he asked Beindorff to shoot him as a joke.

They stated that their son was never depressed, and had sent a text message to his sister just 10 minutes before he was shot.

Beindorff was booked into the St. Louis City Justice Center on charges of 2nd degree murder and armed criminal action. He is currently being held in lieu of a $300,000 cash-only bond.
