2 Killed in ‘Black Friday’ Shootout at Toys-R-Us

Black Friday has gotten even blacker. 

Two people have been killed after a shootout took place at a Toys-R-us store in Palm Desert, California on Friday morning.

The incident, allegedly the result of a dispute over a toy, occurred just hours after the terrible news emerged that a Wal-Mart employee had being trampled to death by a stampede of ravenous consumers at a Long Island store.

This is a shocking indication of consumption gone overboard and material greed leading to the tragedy of death.

Black Friday has turned violent after reports of shots fired at the Toys-R-Us on Highway 111 in Palm Desert.

Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputies tell News Channel 3 at least one people was shot. One person, a juvenile, was reportedly held by police.

The incident happened just before 11:30 a.m. at the store located at 72314 Highway 111, according to deputies on scene.

Deputies told News Channel 3 that some shoppers inside were evacuated while others were kept in the store shortly after shooting as deputies swept the store for suspects.

Authorities are possibly looking for a green-colored getaway car, either a Nissan Maxima or a Kia.

Riverside County Sheriff’s Department as well as officers from the Cathedral City and Indio police departments are on scene.
