There are wacky GPS mistakes and then there are tragic ones. WSBTV reports that Rodrigo Abad Diaz, was driving three passengers to a friend’s house, where they were to pick up a girl before going ice skating. Friends say the GPS sent Diaz to the home of Phillip Walker Sailors. As they waited in the driveway, the 69-year-old came out of the house, went back in, then returned, toting a handgun, which he fired into the air. They quickly tried to leave, but Sailors fired at the car, hitting Diaz on the left side of his head, and then trained his gun on the passengers, holding the three high
school students until police arrived. He assumed it was a home invasion and he maintains his innocence.
