Here's a big WTF. A game of cards between family turned deadly when one man took out a gun and began shooting early Sunday morning in San Bernardino, according to the San Bernardino Sun. 33-year-old Ricardo Magana-Lemus was apparently losing money when his brother tried to call the game off because it was getting late. Magana-Lemus didn't want to end the game yet and an argument developed, ending with him apparently pulling a gun and firing off shots. He tried to hit his brother, but a bullet struck his sister-in-law i the head, police said. Magana-Lemus fled and hasn't been seen since.
