ASTONISHED Google Maps explorers have discovered what looks to be an armed robbery in progress.
Shocking images emerged showing a teenage boy holding a gun shooting another child.
“Did Google Car just witness a crime?” asked a related Reddit user.
However, a third young man was also seen nearby holding a smartphone, suggesting this could be an elaborate hoax.
Just before that, the trio were also seen mingling with each other, further raising suspicions that they were quickly faked when they saw the Google Maps car driving.
One observer said: “I feel like they saw the car go by and decided to prank it by pulling out a gun and pointing it at one of his friends as the car turned.
“And you can see the guy on the right is recording it for TikTok or something.
“The only crime is that the car went the wrong way on a one-way street.”
Even if it’s a joke, it’s unclear if the gun is real and how a teenager had such a quick gun on hand to pull it out.
The images were taken in a neighborhood just outside the French capital Paris.
According to Google Street View data, it was taken in Asnières-sur-Seine around June 2019.
This is the latest in a string of strange moments that Google Maps has witnessed over the years.
