Police in the US state of California have arrested a university student suspected of shooting dead a man in a dispute over a video game console.
The incident happened on Monday at an apartment block close to the California State University campus in Fresno.

Police said 19-year-old criminology student Jonquel Brooks got into an argument with four men at his apartment and opened fire with a handgun.

A 19-year-old man was killed and two other men received gunshot wounds.

"The dispute was over a Playstation," said Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer.

"The suspect pulled out a handgun and fired repeatedly towards the direction of these individuals."

Students 'not in danger'

Police evacuated the apartment complex as they searched for the gunman, but the university campus remained opened.



Mr Dyer said that Mr Brooks handed himself in after intense telephone negotiations involving police, his parents and a lawyer.

He said students at the nearby campus had never been in danger because police were in contact with the gunman and knew he was not on the campus.

The two injured men have been released from hospital.

The incident comes only three weeks after a student went on a deadly shooting spree at a university, causing shock across America.

Twenty-three-year-old Cho Seung-hui killed 32 students on the Virginia Tech campus before committing suicide.

It is not in Ontario County but I AM and I consider this important news as it should be a wake up call for what may happen here one day in our schools as well if kids can kill over a play station game!

Kids can kill over sneakers, too. Want them to go barefoot?

Here's a novel idea: Teach them not to kill.

No, we need to spend millions of taxpayer dollars teaching them that abstinence is the only answer to HIV.

You are one poor, sick, misfit. You couldn't make it in the Army and you can't even hold a job. You have the vocabulary of a thirteen year old.

you're funny alright RS, but in a sick sort of way, with the usual dribble that your posts contain, it keeps me out of these types of forums.

Just what the forum needs, another critic with nothing to say. You don't have anything intelligent to offer on the many subjects on this forum?

Actually, I think it's apathy, but whatever you say. LOL. We'll go with denial of the "fact" that I'm a "commie" is the first step in "losing my freedom."
