postheadericon Attempted Armed Robbery Of Concealed-Carrying Pokemon Go Player In Vegas Park Ends With Gunfire: Be Aware Of Your Surroundings

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA — A group of Pokemon Go players came into some trouble while they were playing the popular game at a park in Las Vegas at 4am. The twist? One of the players, a concealed carrier, was armed at the time.

While trying to catch Pokemon –or whatever you do with that game– the group was met by two suspects that pulled up next to them in an SUV. Armed with handguns, the suspects demanded the group’s belongings.

In that moment, the armed player drew his firearm and the two sides exchanged gunfire. One person was hit in the Pokemon Go group, and one of the suspects was also hit. Both went to the hospital for treatment.

One person in the Pokemon group was shot once in the stomach and taken to the hospital. Meltzer said it’s unclear if that person shot is also the player who had his own gun but that the group of local players knew each other.

The man believed to be the suspect also appeared at the hospital with a gunshot wound to the back. A matching SUV was also found at the hospital.

Both suspects were arrested, and of course charges are expected.

I’ve seen this game played out in the wild and while some are trying to pay attention to their surroundings, most are oblivious. It’s an important reminder that, no matter what we’re doing, we are remaining focused on our surroundings at all times.

These things happen so quickly, after all.
