Those charged include Akebren Ralls, Jai’len Edwards, Justin Mosley and Issiah Hightower.

Two of the men - Ralls and Edwards - were football players at the school.  The other two men had no affiliation with the college.

Charges included armed robbery, aggravated assault, carrying weapons on schools property, gambling and keeping a place of gambling.

The five victims reportedly came over to Ralls residence in order to place a bet on who would win in a match of NBA 2K18, a basketball video game.

As the Atlanta Constitution Journal illustrates, these were not exactly small wagers:

The pot for these games totaled thousands of dollars throughout the night, cops wrote.

Edwards let Hightower and Mosley, carrying Draco .233 caliber pistols, into the apartment sometime between 4 and 5:30 a.m.

The two men ordered the five victims to the ground and demanded their clothes and money, according to warrants.

Witnesses told police Edwards acted as a lookout for Hightower and Mosley, the AJC previously reported. The three took $3,700, an iPhone 7 plus and a wallet containing someone’s Social Security card, according to the warrants.

According to a police report, Ralls had been asleep in the apartment until he heard commotion.

At some point during that commotion, one of the gunmen fired a round. According to police, the bullet traveled through the ceiling and went into the attic, where the bullet lodged itself in a wooden support beam. The damage was estimated at $2,000.
