Originally published December 2, 2003
Anne Arundel County police say they have discovered the cause of a Friday night shooting in Edgewater: an Xbox game system.
Angry that his roommates were being too loud at 2 a.m., Robert Preston Kersey, 34, of the 1700 block of Fairhill Drive stormed into the living room and fired a single gunshot into the game system, disabling it, police said. The 9mm gunshot did not penetrate the system and did not injure anyone at the scene, police said.
Kersey has been charged with two counts of reckless endangerment and one count of destruction of property, police said.
