Video Game Link in Shooting Dismissed by Police Investigators

The suspect in a shooting murder in Oregon was linked to playing “violent video games” but the detectives investigating the case aren’t focusing on it as a factor. In a comedic turn of events, good ol’ Jack Thompson even tries to horn in on the case. Dude just won’t quit even after being disbarred.

The Oregonian prompted controversy on Monday, January 26, when it reported that "one of the things that bought Ayala joy" was playing violent videogames. Slater said a copy of the videogame Grand Theft Auto III was found at Ayala's apartment, but said police were not pursuing a link between videogames and the shooting. "There were a lot of videogames in the apartment," said Slater. "Of a wide variety of the kind you might find in any 24-year-old's apartment."
