A man was detained and received a citation from police after shooting his computer with a gun in public, police in Colorado said.
Colorado Springs Police said that on Monday night, 37-year-old Lucas Hinch discharged his firearm within city limits after he wanted to take revenge against his computer for giving him a hard time.
Police said that it appeared that Hinch got tired of fighting with his computer over the past several months.
Hinch told investigators that he was having too many problems with the computer, so he decided to take it out in the alley and shoot it.
The shooting was heard in the 2200 block of West Colorado Avenue.
Hinch told police officers who arrived at the scene that he did not realize that he was violating the law by shooting his computer.
Hinch shot the computer at least eight times, killing it.
