Security Guard Shoots and Kills Chinese Grandfather Playing Pokemon Go

posted by Randall

Pokemon GoA 60-year-old Chinese grandfather from Virginia has been killed while he played Pokemon Go, reports WTKR.

Jiansheng Chen was playing reportedly to get closer to his grandchildren.

He was shot by a security guard hired to patrol the Chesapeake Bay neighborhood where Chen lived.

An attorney hired by Chen’s family believes the grandfather was shot partly due to a language barrier.

“His family is a homeowner in the area,” said attorney Greg Sandler. “Ironically, he is one of the people security is supposed to be protecting as a homeowner.”

It’s unclear what lead up to the shooting, but according to Sandler, the guard fired through the windshield of Chen’s vehicle.

The name of the guard has not been released. No charges have been filed. The case is still under investigation.

The Riverwalk Community Association says it has a contract for unarmed roving patrol services. It’s not known why the guard was armed.

    RE: Security guard shoots and kills Chinese grandfather playing Pokemon Go: That is truly sad and to try and say a language barrier in Virginia? The guard should have called the cops if he had a problem. Why wasn’t he checked for weapons before his shift started?
