If you think nothing could ruin an innocent game of bingo then think again. Approximately 100 or so people were playing bingo in a hall in San Jose, California when a gunman came through the doors stealing the evening’s receipts so yep, that’ll do it.

One of the players, John Esparza, said that everyone remained unharmed. The bingo games was held at a high school on Wednesday evening to raise money for band uniforms and school trips to Spain, France and Italy.

The gunman was wearing a ski mask warning the players that he was armed as he proceeded to take the cash from the cash box.

Esparza claimed that several bingo players went after the man once it was clear what was happening but he escaped and 911 was called.

The game was ended abruptly as the prize money had been stolen.
