A Byte Out Of Crime


Police were called Thursday to the home of an Issaquah, Wash., man who shot shot his personal computer, apparently in frustration. The computer, in a home office on the second floor of the man’s town house, had four bullet holes in the hard drive and one in the monitor. One bullet struck a filing cabinet, while another made it through a wall and into a neighboring unit. No one was hurt. Police evacuated the complex, contacted the 43-year-old man by telephone and got him to come out. He was taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation.
