Saturday brought news of the first robbery of a PlayStation 4; today brings news of the first killing associated with one. Police in Orlando, Florida, say two men were shot, one fatally, in the aftermath of a PS4 sale gone wrong Sunday afternoon.
Authorities say Emmanuel Johnson, 25, had agreed to meet an unidentified 23-year-old man outside Orlando police HQ at 4.30pm to buy the console from him. The meeting location was changed at the last minute, and that's where the shooting occurred.
Johnson ended up shot dead. The unnamed 23-year-old was also hospitalised with gunshot wounds. Investigators don't believe anyone else was involved in the transaction or the shooting, a spokesman said.
