Omaha, NE- An argument over an X-Box 360 turned violent at a west Omaha game store. The owner says a customer used a Guitar Hero to bust up the store.
David Mitchell, the owner of the Game Repair Shop near 120th and West Center spent the weekend installing new surveillance cameras after a fight broke out with a customer on Friday.
Mitchell says the customer wanted to return an X-box saying it did not work. According to Mitchell, when he refused to take it back, the customer got mad and took a swing at him.
"He smashed up our cash register, our donation jar, it was full of glass, my shirt was all ripped up. So I got down, picked up my shotgun that I had behind the counter, cocked it, and that's when he ran out the store," says Mitchell.
The two men fought and the customer left. He came back with a couple of buddies and they fought again.
Mitchell says he told police who did it, but the suspects told police he threw the first punch. He plans to take legal action for the cost of repairs.
Tests showed the X-box was in working order.
