Wal-Mart customer shot in line for a PS3

The two tried to rob of line of people waiting to buy the new gaming console early Friday. They confronted a "bunch of people who were in line" outside a Wal-Mart store shortly after 3 a.m. and demanded money, said Lt. J. Paul Vance, a spokesman for the state police. The new Sony consoles are selling for around $500 to $600.

"One of the patron's resisted. That patron was shot," Vance said.


You know you like your video games too much when you're willing to get shot over money for a PS3 :roll:

In any event, suffice to say I hope these guys get caught.

i just don't know what to say...

shot for a toy. that's right up there with " i shot him cause he looked at me funny"

stuff like this just amazing

Money, toy whatever they were looking for it wasn't an excuse to kill the guy.

this world is too greedy
Rap music is being listened to by 97% of teenagers, if you're one of the 3% of teenagers that actually listen to real music, then put this in your signature.

Of course...no murder is. But it was an attempted robbery for cash. The fact that a PS3 was involved had nothing to do with it...it could haved been people standing in line for concert tickets or the newest tickle-me-elmo, or using an ATM..

They confronted a "bunch of people who were in line" outside a Wal-Mart store shortly after 3 a.m. and demanded money


I just hate when topic headings are sensationalized thats all. Nobody was "shot dead for a PS3".

"shot dead in line for a PS3." The author knew what he was saying.

Nope. He was shot dead in line for $600. Or for rather not giving up $600. They had no playstations yet...they were still in line!

The customer was in line for PS3, I am not arguing the robber's motives.
