15 yr old kid being shot in the head is awful, but seriously. Don’t try rob people.
15 year old kids having guns and robbing people is even more awful.

I guess it is a cultural thing, but I havent personally ever met a person whom have been robbed/mugged in my country. And I know one person whom owns a handgun.

But I have heard that violent robbing&mugging have became more common even at here too, mostly done by non-native people and guns have become more common among low lifes, they say. At least around the capital city, where most of the problems have concentrated.

I sell lot of stuff online and meet people almost weekly, dunno if I would be brave enough to meet buyers anymore if things like this would happen here.

Still sick, to think that robbing someone by gunpoint because of damn console is worth it, or to have to shoot someone in the head because of a console.
