CO man arrested after shooting computer 8 times

A Colorado Springs man fired eight shots in to his computer. (April 20, 2015)

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KXRM/MEDIA GENERAL) – It’s like a scene out of “Office Space” with a little more firepower.

Colorado Springs police said a man fed up with fighting his computer for the last several months took it into a back alley and fired eight shots into using a handgun.

The incident happened around 7 p.m. Monday. Lucas Hinch, 37, was cited for discharging a firearm within city limits.

The Gazette in Colorado Springs reports that Hinch was pretty good about the citation and didn’t realize he was breaking a law when he shot his Dell.

The Colorado Springs Police Department posted about the shoot-up on Twitter, calling it an ‘execution.’
