The dark and violent Side of Black Friday

Millions went shopping on Black Friday, besides great deals there was also violence and death on a day where it is supposed just to be about the fun of finding great deals and gifts.
The most violent scene experienced shoppers at the ToysRus store in Palm Desert, California. Two men pulled guns and shot each other because of argument of two females. Few details have been released so far by the police. Read the details on myDesert.
ToysRus issued a statement saying that the company is outraged by the violence that occurred.
Earlier on Black Friday a Walmart worker died during a stampede at the Walmart store in Long Island, NYC. Apparently eager shoppers broke down the doors and knocked him to the ground.
There was a crowd of 2,000 shoppers outside the Walmart store at 5am. More details on Bloomberg.
