Another day, another public Pokemon GO scandal. Pokemon GO Players shot at. A man in Florida opened fire at two teens that were playing Pokemon Go near his house, because he thought they were thieves.

The man was awoken at 1.30 AM by a loud noise. He saw a car parked outside his home, at which point he went outside to investigate. The man opened fire on the teens that were inside their car when he heard them say “Did you get anything?”. He started shooting at the car at which point the teens drove away.

The kids were unharmed, though they did end up with a flat tire and bullet holes in the car. This is not the first public incident Pokemon GO caused and it won’t be the last.
