Boy, 16, fatally shot while trying to sell Xbox
quote:

Johnny Peluyera, 16, of Merrillville, Ind., was looking to sell his Microsoft Xbox game console. The teen thought he found a buyer in Gary, just a few miles away, after using an online sales app.
quote:

But when Johnny and his dad went to Gary to sell the device, they found trouble instead. Two males tried to rob Johnny, with one taking out a semi-automatic handgun, as Johnny’s dad watched from the car, according to police.

“That's when he told his son, ‘Leave the Xbox,'” Commander Jack Hamady of the Gary Police Department told Chicago’s WLS-TV.
quote:

Johnny then ran back to the car but one of the suspects fired a shot, killing Johnny. His dad was not injured, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. "My son is gone," Kelly Arroyo, the teen’s mother, told WLS. “My son is never coming back.
quote:

Police say they’re searching for two suspects in their late teens or early 20s who were wearing shorts and hoodies.

Why shoot him while he's running away? My God people are fricking animals. And that poor dad had to watch his son get shot. I can't imagine the guilt he's feeling right now.

No description.

That pretty much gives you the exact description.

Without looking I bet dem were some good ole baws that shot him. Don't do craigslist deals unless it done in a public area.

I wonder why they don't have the race of the suspects on the description.

It's Gary, IN. The Beirut of the Midwest.

Gary Ind is an extremely dangerous shithole

What a tragic story

I would advise against selling things to Gary residents.

These people are animals who don’t deserve to live... they should be set on fire in the quad. I couldn’t imagine how the father feels... that has got to be the most helpless feeling in the world.

Always use a police station parking lot when making these transactions.

A kid is dead and the lives of the perpetrators are over, all over an Xbox. It’s amazing the lack of respect that people have for life.

This is exactly why LSU FB players Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Jared Small were armed when selling their electronic device.

Gary’s decline from a peak in the 1960s has brought a destruction and despair that I have seen in many de-industrialized towns across the US. Those towns voted heavily for Donald Trump for president, but Gary is different. More than 84% of Gary is African American, and although Gary has experienced more decline than most places, a strong majority voted for Hillary Clinton.

Gary is a dump.

I’ve had to go for work. Thankfully, nothing happened, but I was ignorant on how bad the crime is there before I went.

I know now.

Feel awful for that dad. Animals shoot people over a stupid XBox.

Surprised the dad didn’t tell the son to wait in the car and go make the transaction.
