      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Investigators in suburban Philadelphia say 24-year-old Joseph Jimenez shot and killed 25-year-old Scott Riley after they started arguing over a game of beer pong at a party Friday night in Bridgeport, about 15 miles outside Philadelphia.

Authorities say the two men began arguing during the party and then met up outside, where Riley mocked Jimenez and challenged him to shoot.

According to a police complaint, Jimenez drew a concealed .40-caliber handgun and fired, striking Riley in the neck. Riley was taken to a hospital, where he died.

Jimenez is being held without bail on first- and third-degree murder charges.
