A Philadelphia teen was arrested Wednesday for allegedly shooting his friend multiple times in the head over a stolen video game console.

Malik Anderson, 18, and Daquan Crump, 19, originally conspired to steal another friend's Playstation 3 together, MyFoxPhilly reports. But after Crump went ahead with the scheme alone and sold the gaming device for $60, police say Anderson lured Crump to a demolition site and fatally gunned him down.

After the first shot, "[Anderson] stood over ... his longtime friend and fired nine more times, shooting him in his head and killing him." Philadelphia Police Homicide Cpt. James Clark told NBC Philadelphia.

A construction worker discovered Crump's body on Aug. 19, shortly after the violent incident, WPVI reports.

"In their mind, this is worth a human life," Clark said. "Because I didn't get a cut of a $60 profit from a used PlayStation game I'm gonna stand over top and shoot a kid that I've been friends with since I was 10, 11 years old. It's really unconscionable and it's just very, very sad and very tragic."

Police say they found Anderson's .22 caliber automatic handgun inside his refrigerator.

Anderson is charged with first-degree murder.
