Man shot in groin in Detroit over bag of potato chips

Fortunately I did not encounter such violent pettiness when I was in Detroit this summer. And to think I was about two blocks away from where this poor fellow was shot.

From the Detroit News:
Police are investigating a Tuesday night shooting after a man reportedly refused to give up his bag of potato chips.

The shooting at 9:30 p.m. happened near Eight Mile and Dequindre, according to police.

A 59-year-old man told police that he was walking in the 20300 block of Conant when a man approached and snatched his chips from his hand. The victim reportedly told the suspect "Yo, man, give me back my chips" and grabbed them back. The man then pulled out a handgun and shot the victim in the groin, police said.
The victim is under care at a hospital and he's in stable condition.

From my post at Da Tech Guy:

I walked its streets--the tragedy of Detroit.

Let me guess... both perp and victim are black, and neither "black lives matter" nor Al Sharpton give a damn.

What do I win?
