Police say man robbing Raleigh poker game killed


RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- A man has been shot and killed in Raleigh
after police say he and another masked intruder entered a home
during a poker game and tried to rob the players.

The News and Observer of Raleigh reported that 28-year-old
Brandon Dwain Shelton was killed and 23-year-old Brian Matthew
Onley was wounded during a struggle at the home late Monday.

Onley was being treated at WakeMed. Police said he would face
charges when he's released.

The owner of the home, 34-year-old Gregg Maluchnik, was charged
with gambling.

Neighbors said Maluchnik's house was the scene of regular
Monday- and Wednesday-night gatherings

Maluchnik is a former Duke University baseball player who went
on to play in the major leagues from 1998 to 2003.
