Gambling Feud Results in Six Shot, 2 Killed

Six people were shot in Memphis, Tennessee this past weekend were shot after a gambling dispute, leading to two people being killed.

The crime took place at a home in Memphis at around 8 in the evening on Saturday, and police were notified after five people were admitted to the emergency room at Methodist North Hospital with gunshot wounds. The victims were aged 13 to 21, and the two fatalities were reported as Marcus Conway and Marquese Taylor.

In a tweet, the Shelby County Sheriff's Office revealed that the shooting was related to a feud that arose from illegal gambling. The police believe that the victims personally know the shooter, but have been slow to provide information to authorities regarding the identities of the suspect.

As of press time no arrests have been made.

Wow..one of the victims just 13!
Kids gambling with guns on their disposal..?!
I wouldn't be surprised if there's been alcohol or drugs(or both) in use too...that would be an explosive combination most of the times...no wonder this story ended up tragically.

Teenagers' gambing could cause big problems like this.
But, there are already some gamblimg elements in online or moblie games other than casino games...

By the victims age range, 13 year old might be participating in the gamble, unfortunately.
