Google Maps: ​Man Pulls Gun On Google Street View Car In Shocking Footage

That little camera on the top of the Google Map-mobile has seen some harrowing images. Despite its main aim of preventing the world from getting lost, it always seems to be getting into trouble. Recently, we spotted a man aiming a weapon at the poor thing. Why someone would aim a gun at a car is beyond me, but then again, I'd like to think that I'm a semi-rational person. Strangely enough, we've just come across yet another weapon wielding weirdo who has a vendetta against Google Maps. This time, the shocking footage was captured in Columbia.

By traversing the street step-by-step, you can watch the attempted robbery unfold. In the first shot, we can see a blurred-out man stood by the side of the street with a shifty looking fella wearing an orange t-shirt. It's believed the Fanta-esque accomplice gave the man the gun in the first place.

In the second shot we can the orange-shirted man looking even shiftier as a tiny dog stands by. We're not sure whether or not the dog was involved in the crime.

In the third image we can see that the locals, which include children, are running for cover as the man reportedly opens fire on the Google driver. If you don't believe us, then we've been able to gain access to the original, unblurred image which clearly shows the deranged individual pointing his weapon.

It's not the first time Google Maps or Google Earth have picked up something a little unnerving. We found a house of horrors which was so disturbing that it was blurred out completely. In a more uplifting scene, the cheeky camera nearly snapped a lady in the noddy.

So remember, next time you're thinking about doing anything wacky, Google Maps could be watching.
