A 16-year-old Florida boy was killed this week after he and at least two others took turns shooting each other while wearing body armor, officials said.

Joshua Vining and Colton Whitler, both 17, were arrested Thursday and are on trial as adults in connection with Sunday’s shooting incident in Belleview (about 70 miles northwest of Orlando), where Christopher Leroy Broad Jr. was killed, according to Belleview Police Department.

Officers said they were responding to a call where they found the boy with a gunshot wound inside the home. He was taken to a hospital where he later died, police said.

A video of the incident was recorded by 18-year-old Evan Vowell, who was reportedly in the house at the time of the incident, and later provided the video to police, Click Orlando reported.

Vowell told police that Vining started the shooting game after producing a firearm and a bulletproof vest, asking if they had “ever seen anyone shot with a bulletproof vest on,” officials said.

Investigators determined Vowell’s statement was true after Whitmer initially misled police, saying, “My house just got shot in, my friend was shot in the chest,” according to affidavits before calling police. In a later statement, Whitler said Vowell Broad Jr. but the evidence did not support this claim, police said.
