Rob­ber gets shot by Poke­mon Go player

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Au­thor­i­ties say a gun­man tried to rob a group of peo­ple play­ing the Poke­mon Go game at a Las Ve­gas park, so a player pulled a firearm and the two shot each other. Po­lice Lt. David Gor­don says both men had non-life threat­en­ing in­juries. He says an armed man drove up to six peo­ple play­ing the pop­u­lar cell­phone game, which sends play­ers to phys­i­cal lo­ca­tions to “catch” vir­tual Poke­mon char­ac­ters. The sus­pect de­manded money and pos­ses­sions at gun­point early Monday, and one of the Poke­mon play­ers drew his own gun. The player was shot once and taken to a hos­pi­tal. A man be­lieved to be the sus­pect also ap­peared at the hos­pi­tal with gun­shot wounds.
