A San Francisco man arrested on suspicion of killing another man for a Playstation 4 video game console is scheduled to be arraigned in court on Wednesday, a district attorney’s office spokesman said.
Ronnie Collins, 21, is accused of fatally shooting Ikenna Uwakah, 22, at about 3:30 p.m. Sunday near Mendell Street and Galvez Avenue in San Francisco’s Bayview District.
Police said Uwakah arranged online to sell the gaming console to Collins, who went to the meeting place and instead shot Uwakah as he sat in his car.
Uwakah was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police took Collins into custody on Monday morning and booked him on suspicion of murder and attempted robbery.
District attorney’s office spokesman Alex Bastian said Collins will be arraigned on charges in the case at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Hall of Justice.
The victim’s brother, Obinna Uwakah, said Ikenna was home for the Thanksgiving holiday and had attended Santa Monica College.
Police Chief Greg Suhr said he was with his girlfriend when he was shot but that she was uninjured.
