A card game turned violent when someone shot two men to death in a Pine Bluff apartment.  Police do not have any suspects in the case.

Witness Takeidra Diggs says she heard gun shots Thursday night.  She lives right across the hall from the apartment that somebody shot up.  She heard at least seven shots, several into the kitchen window.  "My parents were lying in bed and told me to get into the bed and they saw someone maybe it was the one that got shot."

Police say at least four people were inside the apartment playing cards at 10pm when the bullets started flying.

"We were all sitting here watching TV when we heard gunshots and hit the floor.  We didn't know what to think," Witness Renee Williams said.

Police say seconds later the shooters got brave.  "Somebody kicked open the front door after they fired outside they started firing inside the house," Lt. Bob Rawlinson with the Pine Bluff Police Department said.

30-year-old Richard Buckley, Senior was shot in the head and died in the apartment and 30-year-old Samuel Lindsey was shot in the stomach and died at the hospital.
