Police said today that a 31-year-old man was murdered Monday night in San Francisco over the robbery of a video game system.
According to police Sgt. Steve Mannina, the killing suspect had taken a video game consol from the victim near the intersection of Seventh and Market streets just after 9 p.m.
One of two women who were walking with the victim ran after the robber and confronted him.
She yanked the video game system from his hands just as her other two friends arrived.
