Cribbs said Gray, the mother of three small children who had recently started work at Golden Corral, was hit in the head by a bullet when a gun discharged during a fight. It happened about 2 a.m. Friday during a poker game.

Cribbs said two people started fighting, one of them pulled a gun and started pistol whipping the other. The gun discharged during the whipping, Cribbs said.

The game and subsequent fight occurred in the 900 block of Whippoowill Way.
