On Saturday night, the buddies, Cheyenne Baez, 19, and Enrique Baez, 17, went to a party, joined by two other friends. They returned to Enrique Baez's Jamaica Plain apartment early Sunday morning and, according to police, began playing with a silver-handled revolver in Enrique Baez's bedroom.

Suddenly the gun fired, and a bullet tore through Cheyenne Baez's face, killing him.

The gun was loaded, police said.
