KONTAK PERKASA FUTURES – With Pokemon GO going nuts recently, the security issue of this game also gets exposed. Last Weekend, two teens looking for Pokemon were misktaken for thieves in search of a house to rob and end up getting shot at.
A man was sleeping in his Palm Coast area home about 1:30 a.m. when a loud noise woke him up. The 37-year-old looked outside and spotted a white car parked in the road outside his Primrose Lane house, said Flagler County Sheriff’s Office Jim Troiano.
He grabbed his handgun and went outside to investigate. As he came up to the car, he overheard one of the two teens say “did you get anything?” Troiano said.
That’s when the man stepped in front of the vehicle, thinking they had possibly broken into his home, raised his gun and ordered them not to move, officials said.
The vehicle sped towards him and he moved out of its path. He then fired rounds at the vehicle because he said it “was attempting to strike him,” Troiano said.
Deputies searched the area but couldn’t find the vehicle.
The next morning, a mother of one of the teens called authorities to report what had happened.
She said her 19-year-old son and his 16-year-old friend were playing Pokemon Go on their smartphones when they were confronted by a man who came out of a home and started shooting at them, authorities said.
The mother told deputies the teens did not tell her about the incident until they saw the car had a flat tire and bullet holes in the rear tire, hubcap and fender.
Officials talked with the teens who said they were sitting in the car hunting two Pokemon—a Marowak and Tauros.
One said “Did you catch him?” and the other responded “Yeah, did you?” That’s when the teens said they heard gunfire and sped away, Troiano said.
When they got home they checked to see if they were injured or if there was any damage to the vehicle. They didn’t see anything and decided not to report it because they thought “it was someone trying to scare them,” Troiano said.
Officials are continuing to investigate the incident.
