Police are investigating a drive-by shooting involving people waiting in line for a video game.

Dozens of people camped out in front the Best Buy store on Nicholasville Road. They're hoping to get their hands on a Sony PlayStation 3 console. But the wait turned serious when someone drove by and fired shots at people waiting in line.

Four people were hit by the BB pellets, including 27 NEWSFIRST reporter Elizabeth Dorsett. She was interviewing someone in line at the time. None of them were seriously hurt.

Police came to the store to investigate. They're still looking for a suspect. Lexington Police say they'll stay at the Best Buy to make sure people in line stay safe.

The PlayStation 3 goes on sale Friday morning at eight. The consoles are selling for more than $600 a piece.

    see how the media glorifies everything. They were shot with a BB gun, they make it sound like a a drive by in gangland. We have to sell the news to get people to tune in.

    sounds like a ploy to make hype over the PS3 - they drove by shooting a bb gun for no reason, the fact that it was a lineup for PS3 doesnt matter it could have been a lineup for anything - and to the lady who "has a child that is addicted to them" for his sake and yours take it away from him, but please do not say that he is addicted and leave him with it, that teaches him to think its ok being addicted to stuff, and be light with the word addicted, you wouldn't even use that word if you knew someone that was really addicted to coke or meth and really does sell all his familys stuff to fulfill his habit, dont desensitize the kid

    I think that it is getting pretty bad when you have to be afraid to go out shopping. Some thing needs to be done.

    Being new to this part of Kentucky, and coming with major back problems, I want everyone to know how the U.K. Hospital emergency personnel treated me on the eve of 2-17-08. Absolutely wonderful. They were so busy with sick people but they took me in, got me squared away in a very professional matter. Want everyone to know how wonderful they were. Thanks HLH
