Two armed men tried to rob a line of PS3 campers hours before launch. According to police reports, two gunmen in Putnam, Connecticut, confronted 15 to 20 people outside of a Wal-Mart shortly after 3 a.m. and demanded money.
The robbers must have figured out that anyone in line for a PlayStation 3 would have the $500 to $600 to pay for the machine. While most would pay for the machine using plastic, there had to be a few with just cold, hard cash.
The two gunmen fled the scene after shooting a 21-year-old Massachusetts man in the chest and shoulder. The victim was immediately taken to the hospital, with no word yet of his current condition. Read the full story here.
While last night wasn't one without incident, as there was another shooting (but with BB pellets) and a man who ran into a pole (story), but this one takes the cake.
