There hadn’t been a death due to Black Friday since 2013. But this is 2016, a year that’s trying hard to claim the title of Worst Year Ever . . . so you knew that streak was going to end. And it did. Sadly, TWO people were killed on Black Friday.
A 21-year-old named Demond Cottman from Atlantic City, New Jersey was killed outside of a Macy’s at a mall around 1:00 A.M. on Friday. His brother was also shot, but he survived. The police still don’t have any suspects in the shooting.
And in Reno, Nevada, a 33-year-old man was killed after a fight over a PARKING SPOT outside of a Walmart. The cops are trying to track down the shooter.
There was also a shooting at a mall in Memphis, Tennessee, but fortunately that guy survived.
And a couple other serious incidents on Black Friday happened in other countries.
A cop was STABBED trying to stop a shoplifter in England . . . a woman was hurt in a STAMPEDE at a mall in South Africa . . . and a guy was arrested in Vancouver after he used his BELT as a WHIP on other people at an Adidas store.
