The game has also caused players to get into heated arguments which had lead to physical fighting, shootings, stabbings and even death in some cases.

The latest mahjong news comes from Antipolo City in the Philippines. Armando Abasalon was playing mahjong at a location near his home when he was shot. An unidentified man approached Abasalon and pulled a gun and then proceeded to shoot him in the head. The suspect then fled the scene and police are still investigating the case. These details came from the report of Supt. Manuel Delfin
Pion the city’s chief of police.
This case makes one wonder, did the suspect know the man and was trying to maybe collect a mahjong debt? Or did the man just randomly walk up to the victim and decide to shoot him? Hopefully police will be able to track the subject down soon and figure out why he chooses to shoot the mahjong player.
