On Monday, Walb News reported about a poker game between friends that ended pretty bad. It happened early Saturday morning on Boby Drive in Columbus.
"They had a dispute within the poker game and the gentleman got mad. All I remember is my wife waking up at 3 a.m. and hearing two different kinds of gunshots. I ran over to the door to see and I watched the party scatter," said neighbour Christopher Rodriguez.
Two men were firing a dozen rounds at each other and damaged some of the homes in the neighbourhood. Police report that one of the men continued shooting after being shot four times in the legs and lower abdomen.
"He was just laying there. I know he wasn't dead because the gentleman was saying that he shot the other guy. He said, ‘I shot him in the butt! I shot him in the butt! From what I heard, the two gentlemen were friends, and I guess a little bit of drinking and poker went the wrong way," said Rodriguez.
So, how did it all end? Police arrived at the scene shortly after the shooting started. The man who was shot multiple times was taken to the hospital. The other man, identified as Nikia Mcleod, was arrested a short distanced from the scene, and he was the only one that was charged criminally and faces one count of aggravated assault.
