Man In A Wheelchair Shot While Waiting In Line To Purchase Video Game
Things got a little too real out in L.A. earlier this week when anargument between two men while standing in line to purchase the ‘Call of Duty’ video game ended with a shooting.
The gold rush to own Activision / Treyarch’s acclaimed video game took a turn for the worst early Tuesday morning.
A man in a wheelchair was shot as he waited in line outside a Koreatown GameStop to purchase “Call of Duty: Black Ops II”. The victim, a Latino male in his early 20s, was waiting in line just after 1 a.m. on Wilshire Boulevard and Vermont Avenue when he became embroiled in an argument with another man, according to Los Angeles police officials.
The suspect produced a real life gun and fired multiple shots, hitting the victim in the stomach.
Sgt. Pete Llanes said, “The suspect walked up, shot him and then fled on foot,” who added that police believe the suspect fled northbound on Chateau Place. The victim was treated at a hospital; his condition was unknown, police said.
While it’s unclear exactly what these two were arguing about, we can’t help but assume that it probably had something to do with the game. SMH. It should never be this serious, folks. EVER.
