You got your PlayStation 4, right? If you didn’t, you may want to wait until Sony ships more because people are using desperate measures to get their hands on the console.
San Francisco police on Monday arrested a man they believe responded to a Daly City resident’s online ad for a popular video game console, then allegedly shot and killed the seller at an arranged Bayview district meeting spot.
Ronnie Collins, 21, of San Francisco, was jailed on suspicion of murder and attempted robbery, said police Sgt. Danielle Newman.
The victim, 22-year-old Ikenna Uwakah of Daly City, was shot multiple times at Mendell Street and Galvez Avenue – the location where he had agreed to meet the person and sell the gaming device, police said. Family members said it was a Sony PlayStation 4.
According to the report, police initially said the gunman took the PlayStation, but that detail remained unclear late Monday, as officials did not explain the arrest for attempted robbery.
