Suppose it was about ethics in video game journalism?
BOSTON (AP) — Two Iowa men suspected of making violent social media threats to people attending the Pokeman Video Game World Championships in Boston have been arrested on gun charges.
Boston police said Sunday that convention security reported the alleged threats on Thursday and the suspects were stopped as they were about to enter the event hours later.
Police said they released the men, but seized their car after learning they might have guns inside.
Police obtained a warrant and searched the car Friday, finding a 12-gauge shotgun, an AR-15 rifle, several hundred rounds of ammunition and a hunting knife. Police said 18-year-old Kevin Norton, of Ames, and 27-year-old James Stumbo, of Boone, were arrested at their hotel in Saugus, north of Boston.
