The 19-year-old victim was selling the approximately $500 videogame system on the 8300 block of Gros Ventre Lane, Fox 26 reported. The buyer reportedly shot the seller in an apparent attempt to take the PlayStation 5 and leave the scene.
The suspect escaped but did not manage to steal the PlayStation 5, according to ABC 13. Meanwhile, the victim was rushed to a nearby hospital where he reportedly remains in stable condition, with a gunshot wound to his side.
The Harris County shooting continues a trend of violence over the holiday season. Three people were shot at a North Carolina shopping mall on Black Friday, including a 10-year-old boy who was hit by a ricochet bullet.
