Subject: Ping Vegas Jerry - Killing at Bakersfield casino last night
Hey Jerry, apparently a security guard was killed at Golden West Casino in Bakersfield last night,
and they found another guy shot full of holes lying on the ground across the street at that small
liquor store on Union Avenue.. Many shots were fired and the players, about 100, panicked and
evacuated.. Details are not clear yet. It happened about 6:00 p.m. There are several news stories
on Google, take your pick, or maybe you heard it in Vegas already. I was just leaving a larger
casino in Fresno when a friend from Northern California sent me the news by text at about 2:00 a.m.
Of course, I think you know what a crummy area that Union Avenue is in Bakersfield, it always has
been. It's not uncommon to hear about shootings on Friday nights, either Bakersfield or Fresno, but
not in card rooms or casinos.
