The arranged sale yesterday of a PS4 console in San Francisco's Bayview District has gone terribly wrong, with one of the men involved being shot dead and robbed by the other.

The San Jose Mercury reports that having met the prospective seller and arranged to meet to buy the console, the suspect instead shot the victim - a man in his early 20s - multiple times, took the PS4 and ran.

San Francisco Police are currently conducting a search for the suspect. Anyone in the area with any information is being urged to contact police on 415-575-4444, or alternatively to send a text to TIP411, with the subject line "SFPD".
