A 17-year-old boy from Stanwood died early Saturday morning after he and two friends, both 18-year-olds, drank hard liquor and energy drinks while playing video games, Shoreline Police Sgt. Katie Larson said.
The three young men were drinking and playing video games when the victim apparently passed out, Larson said.
It was some time later when his friends, realizing he hadn't moved and seeing that something was seriously wrong, called 911.
A Shoreline Police officer was first on the scene at a home in the 170 block of Fourth Avenue Northeast after dispatch received a call at 2:39 a.m. The officer, who was equipped with an automatic electronic defibrillator, started aid but was too late to revive the boy.
The boy was pronounced dead at the scene by Shoreline Fire paramedics.
The King County Medical Examiner's Office will conduct an autopsy.
