New York City students visited a simulated shooting game facility on a school day, reports NBC. Bronx High School of Visual Arts students, led by a teacher, had a chance to see a new shooting game for children called iCombat at Indoor Extreme Sports.
iCombat outfits children like SWAT officers and lets them pretend to have shootouts in an indoor fake village . . . The level of the realism in the game has sparked concerns in the law enforcement community and among child psychologists.
Students were members of a school club, said district officials. “A mistake was clearly made,” Chancellor Dennis Walcott told NBC.
