A man in a wheelchair was shot early Tuesday morning as he waited in line outside a Koreatown video game store to purchase the latest edition of  "Call of Duty."

The victim, a Latino in his early 20s, was waiting in line just after 1 a.m. at GameStop at Wilshire Boulevard and Vermont Avenue when he became embroiled in an argument with another man, said Los Angeles police officials.
The suspect produced a gun and fired multiple shots, hitting the victim in the stomach. 
"The suspect walked up, shot him and then fled on foot," said Sgt. Pete Llanes, who added that police believe the suspect fled northbound on Chateau Place.
The victim was treated at a hospital; his condition was unknown, police said.
Police did not know the motive for the shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call Olympic Division detectives at (213) 382-

God, LA seems like a hole. My wife watches that LA Ink show and it just looks like hell on earth.

He was in a wheelchair. He obviously deserved it.

That's crazy. I used to go to that Gamestop when I lived in Koreatown.

This is just one more example of how video games encourage paraplegia.

Next up on "When Good Times go Bad":
Waiting on line...in Koreatown...at 1am...in your wheelchair.
Probably not the best time of day, or location to be getting into it with the locals...

Well the story does not state he was shot and man fled with game. He was just in line probably had something to do with prior issues between the two.

Lol...your post made me crack up. It reminded me of Dave Chapelle's "When keeping it real goes wrong"

Don't they mean the Special Olympic Division?

I don't think most of us get caught up classifying these folks as anything other than "sub-human."

Well, it could have been worse than dying, he could have ended up in a wheelchair the rest of his.... Oh right...

To be fair, we don't know that he didn't have the use of his legs. He could have just been too lazy to stand in line.

Rule of thumb: People in wheelchairs are lazy until proven otherwise.

I second this, at amusement parks i always tip over people that try to cut in wheelchairs just to make sure. Those are some long lines man, got to be sure

so he was in line at 1am for his game and he was shot but the cops are looking for information and dont know the motive for the shooting.... So he was the only person in line?

Nobody actually looks at handicapped people. So no witnesses.

Hey says:
He's not a person so they don't care. They're just been cursing God, trying to figure out how he could let this monstrosity live.
