The loser of a card game is in jail after deputies say he tried to rob and shoot the man who had just won $100.
 
The Daytona Beach News Journal reports 22-year-old Jeremy Addison was arrested Monday following an incident at a DeLand park. He remained in the Volusia County Jail early Thursday, facing attempted first-degree murder charges.

 
Police say the victim told police he won $100 from Addison. Addison then quit the game, which his friends continued playing. When the victim got up to leave the pavilion, he was struck in the back of the head.
 
The victim told police Addison pointed a gun at him and demanded the money before pulling the trigger several times. The gun didn't fire.
 
No attorney was listed for Addison.
