Google Street View Camera Captures the Business End of a Gun

Jessica Roy, Beta Beat, September 19, 2012


A Redditor published a screencap from a Google Maps street view camera today that shows a gaggle of young men and one woman hanging out on a front porch in Detroit. Innocent enough, except that one of the young men is holding what looks to be a shotgun. As the streetview camera drives off onto the next block, the kid aims the gun at the car.


Update: A couple of Betabeat readers have pointed out that this is the same house where a one-year-old girl was found dead in a closet back in June. Ziya Turner was reported missing by her uncle before being found by cadaver dogs in the closet some hours later. Autopsy results were never released. The family cooperated with police and no one was arrested in connection to the death.
