Video game battles are no joke, but never serious enough to make you pull a gun on your best friend. 19-year-old Patrick Cloud and 21-year-old William Litette were playing video games on Saturday morning in Houma, LA, when they got into a dispute. Punches were thrown, and Cloud kicked Lirette in the forehead, lacerating it. Furious, Lirette retrieved his gun. After pointing it at his "best friend," he fired once into the ground.
