Gambling can be, well, a gamble.

A group of people playing poker at a home in Garden Grove in the early morning hours of Saturday were surprised to find themselves at the scene of an attempted “stick-up.”

According to the GGPD, the incident was in the 12200 block of Diane Street (near Euclid Street and Chapman Avenue) and the call came in at 1:35 a.m.

The card players were engaged in their gaming when a masked man dressed in black fired a shot from a handgun near the rear glass door, and then broke the door and forced his way inside.

He reportedly “waved his gun around” and demanded money.

No one was hit by the gunfire and one person suffered a minor injury.

The suspect – described as a male White wearing all black clothing, including a black mask – fled out the front door “in an unknown direction.” An investigation will follow.
