Home Game Turns Fatal

Home Game Turns Fatal

Thursday, 26 November 2015

In America, a home poker game between work colleagues turned fatal over the weekend with police blaming a deadly combination of alcohol and guns.

According to reports from local television stations KXII Channel 12 and KTEN Channel 10, 23-year-old Robert Carmona allegedly shot Victor Perez in the neck on Saturday evening after the pair fell out during the game in the small southern Oklahoma town of Sulphur.

The 29-year-old victim subsequently died at the scene while Carmona reportedly attempted to escape by walking a few blocks to the Artesian Casino and asking patrons for a lift to the nearby state of Texas. When no chauffeurs were forthcoming, the shooter is alleged to have begun walking south before being apprehended at the side of the road by local police.

“The suspect produced a hand gun and shot the victim in the neck with a .22," said Sulphur Police Chief David Shores.

“Alcohol and guns just don’t mix.”
