ABC is reporting that a group of armed robbers robbed a GameStop in Houston, Texas, where gamers were queuing up for the midnight launch of GTA 5 on new-gen consoles.

The hooded crooks used a taser on one customer, robbed everyone of their cash and cell phones and took some cash from the store’s register.

Thankfully, no one got hurt.
