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.
