The Philadelphia Police Department released the below video of a gun battle that took place in the hallways of a motel last month in the Rhawnhurst neighborhood of the city.

According to the Philly Police Blog:

On March 31, 2014, at 12:28am, 2nd District officers responded to a radio call for a shooting inside the Roosevelt Motor Inn located at 7600 Roosevelt Boulevard. When police arrived an employee stated he heard gunshots coming from a hallway. Soon after the gunshots an unknown black male ran past the front desk armed with a handgun and fled through the parking lot then south on the Roosevelt Boulevard. Surveillance video recovered depicts a group of black male running through the hallways shooting at each other. No complainant’s were found and no one was found injured.

I can’t be sure, but I think these guys believe they’re playing the real-life version of GTA. One of these idiots even tries to pull off a trick shot around a blind corner (starting at about 1:25 in the video).

Check it out for yourself.

DENVER – Lawyers for Colorado theatre shooting suspect James Holmes have offered to have him plead guilty and serve the rest of his life in prison to avoid the death penalty.

Lawyers made the offer in a motion filed Wednesday but said prosecutors haven’t accepted the offer because they may want to pursue the death penalty.

Prosecutors are set to announce Monday whether they’ll seek capital punishment.

Prosecutors declined comment. They would likely consult with victims and their families before deciding whether to accept the offer.

Holmes faces murder and attempted murder charges. The judge entered a not guilty plea for him, but he still has the option of changing that to not guilty by reason of insanity.

Holmes’ lawyers say the case could end Monday if prosecutors accept the offer.
