Clinton man charged with attempted murder in alleged video game dispute -- Gazette.Net


A Clinton man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly opening fire on two men after a dispute over a video game bet, according to the Prince George’s County sheriff’s office.

Paul Henry of the 5200 block of West Boniwood Turn was arrested by county sheriff’s deputies and is charged with attempted first-degree murder, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.

On Jan. 28 in the 4100 block of Branch Avenue in Temple Hills, Henry is alleged to have fired shots at two men he was waiting for behind a Dumpster, striking one man, according to the news release.

The shooting may have been the result of an argument between the men from a video game bet two weeks before the incident, according to the release.

In addition to two counts of attempted first-degree murder, Henry was charged with two counts of attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and use of a handgun to commit a felony crime.

A defense attorney for Henry was not listed with the courts Tuesday, according to county court records. A phone number for Henry’s residence could not be located.
