Report: Man Shoots At Pokémon Go Players, Mistaking Them For Burglars

Early Saturday morning, a 37-year-old man from Florida fired shots at two teens who were stationed in a car in his neighborhood at 1:30 a.m., thinking they were looking for a house to rob. Turns out that all they were after were Pokémon.

According to The Orlando Sentinel, the two were playing Pokémon Go, the augmented reality mobile game that's become a cultural phenomenon since its launch earlier this month. After being awoken by a loud noise, the man noticed a strange, white car parked outside his house. He went outside to investigate while holding his handgun. When approaching the car, he heard two teens inside it say to one another, "Did you get anything?" which immediately made him suspect that they were attempting to rob his home. He stepped in front of the car and ordered the boys not to move. However, the car sped off and that's when the man started to fire shots at it.

No one was injured. Police say that the boys were in search of two Pokémon: a Marowak and a Tauros.

Amy Hennig Details New Star Wars Game, Concept Art Surfaces

We already knew that a Star Wars game from Visceral was in the works, but details have been hazy until now.

During the Star Wars Celebration event today, writer Amy Hennig took the stage and dropped some hints on what we can expect from the upcoming title. Hennig compared the writing of the game to be similar to her past work with Uncharted, which resulted in hearty applause and cheers from the audience. She also described the game as "an original Star Wars story with new characters, new locations, new tech, new creatures, you name it.”

She hopes that the game will resonate with Star Wars fans the same way it would if they watched one of the beloved films of the series, by giving off the feeling of playing through a Star Wars movie.
