Xbox deflects real bullets<br>  <br>Irate Marylander shoots his roommates' console, but the 9mm round fails to penetrate its casing. <br><br> When called to investigate a shooting last Friday night, police in Anne Arundel County, Maryland found an unlikely culprit--an Xbox. <br><br>The Baltimore Sun reports that 34-year old Robert Preston Kersey had grown enraged by his roommates constantly playing their Xbox at high volume. According to the police report, Kersey emerged from his bedroom at 2 a.m. brandishing an automatic pistol. Rather than shoot his roommates, Kersey took aim at the offending Xbox and fired a single shot at the console. While the bullet's impact disabled the Xbox, its thick plastic casing deflected the 9mm round, which ricocheted away harmlessly. <br><br> Other than the Xbox, no injuries resulted from the incident. Kersey was later booked on two counts of reckless endangerment and one count of destruction of property<br><br>

"Why did the article call the X-box the 'culprit'?"<br><br>Guess it's just an old habit when speaking of Microsoft products. <br><br>
