Saints in the Shadows
A fight broke out during the midnight release of the highly anticipated WarGamer-X Limited Edition VR console between several customers over the last one on the shelves, quickly escalating to pandemonium as Elgin’s Megamart’s security was unable to stop the fracas. The instigators of the fight were detained once police were on the scene, but by then, several thousands of dollars of merchandise were already stolen as others took the opportunity to flee with their unpaid merchandise amid the chaos. The underage instigators are being charged with incitement. Megamart is also seeking legal recompense from the teen’s families, citing their actions as the cause for the business’ losses.
