Man Convicted of Shooting Player Over $5 Poker Hand

A North Carolina man has been convicted and sentenced to serve up to 60 months behind bars for shooting a fellow poker player over a $5 hand.

Prentice Reaves was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury by a Columbus County jury on Tuesday.

The incident began as a friendly poker game and quickly turned violent.

“Reaves and the victim had been playing cards when a verbal altercation began over a $5 hand of poker,” a press release states. “During the trial, evidence showed that during the argument Reaves pulled out a handgun and shot the victim once in the abdomen before fleeing the scene. The victim was rushed to a nearby hospital where he underwent surgery and was hospitalized as a result of the injuries sustained from the gunshot.”
