Hot New Video Game Spurns Death Threats

AURORA, Colo. - A customer who didn't get his Call of Duty video game became so irate he threatened to shoot employees and blow up a Best Buy store in Aurora, police said Tuesday.

Police were called just after midnight to the Best Buy near Interstate 70 and Tower Road.

The customer in question, 31 year-old Lomorin Sar, had reportedly pre-ordered the popular game earlier in the day, then became irate when the store ran out of copies.

What happened next should give plenty of fuel to critics who argue that violent video games spawn violent real-life behavior.

The customer reportedly asked the employees when they were leaving work because he said he intended to shoot them in the parking lot. He also mentioned blowing up the store, according to police.

Officers were given a description of the man and his vehicle.

He was pulled over a few blocks away from the store, and issued a summons to appear in court.
