A man from Roswell, Georgia, is dead after he attempted to sell his PlayStation 4 on Craigslist last week. The man, Daniel Zeitz, a 28-year-old, put an ad up on Craigslist to sell his PS4 and found some interested buyers, and they set up a time and place to meet. They decided to meet in a parking lot, and the “buyers” (a 20-year-old-man and a 16-year-old girl) decided to try to steal the PS4 from Zeitz. When the theft failed, the 16-year-old decided to get out a gun. In the chaos, the gun ended up going off with the bullet going through the 20-year-old’s hand before finally hitting Zeitz in the chest. He later died as a result of the injury.
He was killed over a video game console – how low can a person get? I understand that PS4’s are expensive and all, but needless to say they aren’t worth close to the value of a human life. What is this world coming to?
If you decide to buy or sell anything on Craigslist, please be careful. Also, please take someone else with you and meet in a very public place.
