A robbery at the GameStop on Cobb Parkway South in Marietta, Georgia left the store manger dead. A man apparently entered the store around closing time, waited for the last of the customers to leave, and then pulled a gun.
Often times we make fun of these game store clerks, but now I just feel bad about it.
I hope that police catch that son of a bit#h
MY condolences to the family
soo some hardcore gamer nerd was robbing the store for video games? dont ppl usually rob for money? this is sad.. I hope they catch the robber
would have planned well beforehand and bought a system at launch of the console. This is just plain sick practice of a purchase.

I just saw the title of it. Then again, that (money) is obligatory too since he's robbing the store I guess.
but put his ass on death row. Bring back the chair for this bastard!
I too hope they catch the son of a a b*tch. Really sad. My condolences and sympathy to the victim's family.
I was down there at the Marietta store the other day.That sucks.When I was a kid Marietta was a nice place now that I'm 21 its went to hell.I guess I can blame that on my drug dealing generation though.Its like in Friday when Craig's dad says "we wouldn't have moved here if we knew you needed a gun to walk down the damn street" its the truth these days, theres multiple murders,robberies,and rapes every night in the Atlanta area alone.Sad.
all of a sudden its real news 4 gamers
sad sad sad, hopefully they get that guy, show him that this is real life and not some video game fantasy world he lives in...
THE RObber knew MASS EFFECT is only a month away he could not Wait any longer =).
That's just wrong man. Have some respect.
Thanks for showing some maturity.
Grow the hell up Mesh.
Mass Effect is out in November, no way Gamestop has Mass Effect yet. Not even they get it that early. If anything, I think was stealing Ratchet & Clank Future.
clap...clap...clap... lets give a standing ovation to the funny guy. you know there is no single tread that goes without a kid like you writing stupid things like this.
mesh truly disgustin comment nothin more to say on that.heart goes out to the family.
atleast he waited till all the customers left. I wouldn't want to walk into a gamestop and then have someone bust a cap on my ass.
But you can get shot at a redlight in Atlanta.
You can get shot at a red light anywhere. I've spent 25 years of my life driving through downtown Atlanta and nothing has ever happened. Unless you go to somewhere like MLK Boulevard you aren't even going to see a mugging let alone get mugged yourself.
MLK Blvd. is where I was referring to. And even if I don't see it in person I still watch Fox 5 and read the AJC. Crime is straight up on the rise.But I would be more afraid of getting shot by a cop in Dekalb.
Thats really sad... I hope they catch that SOB
Hopefully the robber gets the death penalty. This is a wake up call to realize that outside of the console(s) that us gamers indulge in, there is a cruel reality outside those doors that we all must be careful in. My condolences go out to the gentleman's family and my prayers will be with them. This is another issue that Jack Thompson probably will be pouncing on. Another news story I dont want to read regarding his name.
They better find this guy and take him to jail where he will have a taste of all the sauseges around the jail block !
This is so not called for i mean people dont think what so ever rubbin and killin for what, My heart goes out to the homie that lost his life for nothing. 360 owners, PS3 owners , and WII owners lets just prey for this young homie and hope they catch this dingo berry. Respect and stop beefin on bought my Ps3 is better than your 360 lets come together for this one time at least.
Bubbles for you dude. I definately agree. All the console arguments need to be set aside for just a moment and at least show the gratification of a honest, hard working employee who lost his life over something out of his control and over the juvenile acts of a thug. Reading this thread will really show where the maturity and mindstate of some of our regular posters on this site. Anyone who shows that they do have some compassion for others and leaves a mature response will DEFINATELY get bubbles and agrees from me. Immature comments will get minus bubbles, disagrees and get reported as spam.
This hit home for me (like down the block).Bubbles.
GUNS DONT KILL PEOPLE......PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE
guns makes it so much easier, so I kind of disagree here.
I agree, guns do not kill people......people kill people.....and the thing is, if we had to give up our right to bear arms (talking to American's) crime like this would go way up! Yet so many people are hell bent on taking them away......anyways, this is sad, that guy didn't deserve this. I hope they catch that douchebag hope he gets death row. That guy was just trying to make it out in the world, the honest way. I feel sorry for his family, my condolences go out to them all. @13.1 I disagree with you, heres why. Guns don't make it easier, really, if you are going to kill a person you will do it gun or no gun. You know that on 9/11 the hijackers held those hostages with box cutters......I mean think about that for a minute. A blade kills just as easily, and though you may argue you need more skill to do so with a blade that isn't true. you need skill with a firearm too. We all play games here, it is very different when you fire a real weapon, theres recoil, smoke, it's very loud. You can miss your target very easily. Surprisingly you can make that same mistake with a shotgun, if you don't know how to fire it properly. Sure yeah having a gun can make it easier if you proficient with that weapon, some crooks are, but in general most people aren't. I have extensive firearms training, I live with a cop. Sometimes I miss my target. I've only been in one firefight, when I was a security guard it happened so fast, it really f*** with your senses, and no I wasn't able to shoot the guy, I fired back but he was about 20 yards from me and it was dark, plus I had some debris in my eye. It is very important to let people know, because police officers say it all the time, and don't bash them anyone. They know how this sh!t is they are the ones who keep us safer. They say all the time that we never need to have our right to own firearms taken away form us, because when/if there is ever a time to protect your family what would you do? you would shoot them, but if you had no gun, because it was against the law to own one....what would you do? cops can only get to our location ever so quickly, those seconds do count, when they aren't there yet.
YOU MY FRIEND GET BUBBLES
I don't know what you normally post green ghost, but that was absolutely great, don't know how you only have 2 bubbles. Lets boost that up a bit.
