Theo Jorgensen Shot Inside His Danish Home

Theo Jorgensen Shot Inside His Danish HomeAt the weekend, Team PokerStars Pro Theo Jorgensen was shot three times in his home by robbers who then made off with an undisclosed amount of money. Fortunately, the Danish pro’s injuries are not life threatening as one of the masked men chose to shoot him in the leg and he is now recovering from his injuries in hospital.
Jorgensen has since posted a statement on his Facebook page commenting: “I know that the outsiders may have a mistaken idea of how much cash I have in my home. I have alarm systems installed, always so get cash lying as possible [sic] and generally taken my precautions. It has unfortunately proved not to be enough. I have it under [control] well, and right now I want to focus on taking care of my family, so we can get through this.
The terrifying incident took place on Sunday, December 2nd, at around 10:00pm when the poker pro was relaxing with his wife at their home 21kms from Copenhagen. The three men wearing elephant masks subsequently managed to make their way past his security to demand money from Jorgensen, who was then shot by one of the men after not being satisfied with the amount of money he handed over. Apparently, Jorgensen had given them a sum believed to have been 35,000 kroner equivalent to $6,215.
Theo Jorgensen’s wife witnessed the whole horrific ordeal, and quickly called the police after the intruder fled the scene. Talking to police, the couple described the men as roughly 5′ 9” with one of them carrying a sub-machine gun. So far a search of the surrounding area hasn’t yielded any clues and anyone with any information is encouraged to contact the Central and West Zealand Police.
Danish poker pro Theo Jørgensen is one of his country’s most successful players having won both WSOP and WPT titles, amassing $3,239,763 along the way. In addition, Jørgensen is a prolific live and online cash game player.
