BRIDGEPORT, Pa – One man is dead and another in jail after what suburban Philadelphia police say was an argument over a drinking game that escalated into a fatal shooting.
Investigators say 24-year-old Joseph Jimenez fatally shot 25-year-old Scott Riley after they argued over a game of beer pong at a party on Friday night in Bridgeport, about 15 miles outside Philadelphia.
Authorities say the men began arguing over the game then met up outside, where Riley mocked Jimenez and challenged him to shoot.
According to a police complaint Jimenez drew a concealed .40-caliber handgun and fired, striking Riley in the neck. Riley died at a hospital.
Jimenez is being held without bail on first- and third-degree murder charges. It could not be immediately determined whether or not he has an attorney.
