San Francisco police arrested a 21-year-old man who they say killed another man over a PlayStation 4.

The suspect, Ronnie Collins, made arrangements online to buy the new console from the victim, 22-year-old Ikenna Uwakah. Uwakah was shot at 3:30 p.m. and died in the hospital Sunday, NBC News reports. Collins was arrested on Monday.

Uwakah agreed to meet Collins to sell him the PS4, but Collins allegedly stole it and shot Uwakah as he sat in the passenger seat of his car. Uwakah's girlfriend, who was in the driver's seat, wasn't injured, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Uwakah's father, Onyebuchi, said his son had sold many personal effects online before, without problems.

"He does that all the time," he told NBC News. "He buys telephones and things likes electronics and cells. This is what he does. He doesn’t have to tell me every time he does it. He does it to keep busy when he’s not busy with school."

Police didn't say what website the two used to arrange the deal, but confirmed that it wasn't Craigslist.

The PlayStation 4 -- along with its competitor, the Xbox One -- is in high demand this holiday season. Sony sold more than a million of its consoles during its first 24 hours on the market in November. Plenty of PlayStation owners are reselling their consoles online at a significant markup, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
