Happy Black Friday everyone! As usual, it’s already shaping up to be humanity’s darkest day of the year.
A customer shot pepper spray at other customers at a busy Northridge Wal-Mart store late Thursday night, causing minor injuries to at least 10 people who had been waiting hours for Black Friday savings, according to Los Angeles firefighters and a police lieutenant. The Associated Press later reported 20 injuries.
A witness told NBC4 that the incident started as people waited in line for the new Xbox 360. The witness said a woman with two children in tow became upset with the way people were pushing in line. The witness said she pulled out pepper spray and sprayed the other people in line.
This is why it’s best to just stay home and watch football on the day after Thanksgiving.
UPDATE: Now with video after the jump.
