PlayStation 3 Melee Watch: Police Shoot Suspected Thief

PlayStation 3 fever could be dying down—thanks to the fact that you have a hard time purchasing one—but that doesn't mean the PS3-related violence isn't still ongoing.

Case in point, officers tried to serve a warrant to a teen suspected of robbing a student of two PS3s. Things turned bad when the kid was unarmed, but may "have been holding a video game controller when he went to the door as it was bashed in by officers." Yikes! In addition, his german shepherd was also "shot to death."

Lesson: don't be holding anything in your hand when police knock down your door. More specifically, nothing black, like a SIXAXIS.
