Man killed in San Francisco over PlayStation 4 game console

Dec. 2 (UPI) -- A young man hoping to make a few bucks by selling his PlayStation 4 game console after placing an online ad was shot and killed by an unknown gunman on Sunday afternoon while trying to make the sale.
After being contacted by the potential buyer, the seller and his girlfriend drove from Hayes Valley to an agreed upon location in the Bayview District.

The couple, both 22, hadn't even exited the vehicle when the gunman robbed them of the Sony gaming system. They gave up the console without a struggle, but the man was still shot several times and died after being taken to the hospital.

“They drove away from the scene as soon as they could,” SFPD Lt. Tim Plyer told KTVU. “And they were able to get hold of a police officer who gave them aid and called for an ambulance.”

The victim’s girlfriend was uninjured. They had listed the popular PS4 for $600, which would have provided a $200 profit.
