A Louisiana boy shot and killed his elderly caregiver, right after playing a first-person shooter, hollers CNN.
Local law enforcement made the link:
[T]he sheriff's department implied the child's activities in a violent virtual world may have led to the killing.
"Although a motive for the shooting is unknown at this time investigators have learned that the juvenile suspect was playing a video game on the Play Station III 'Grand Theft Auto IV,' a realistic game that has been associated with encouraging violence and awards points to players for killing people, just minutes before the homicide occurred."
Ah, naturally it's GTA, the classic bad game boogeyman.
There's a weird amount of violent naming in this news story, from the victim's last name (Smothers) to the town (Slaughter!).
Interestingly, CNN includes some videos, which make the causal connection problematic.
