Card game turns violent; player gets shot, Lexington police say

A man was shot in the leg Sunday night when an opponent in a card game tried to rob him, Lexington police Sgt. Ann Welch said.

The card game on Warfield Place was disrupted when one player pulled a gun and demanded money from another player, Welch said.

When the player refused to give him money, the gunman shot him in the leg, Welch said. He was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
