On October 14th an unlikely event took place at a Texaco gas station in Atlanta, Georgia when an armed robber (male) entered the store around 11:45pm. In the midst of the chaos a shot was fired that hit a ChainBytes Bitcoin ATM.
The bullet hit and shattered the screen, but the steel frame behind it stopped the bullet from impairing the function or compromising the integrity of the machine. ChainBytes is known for manufacturing Bitcoin ATM machines that are extremely strong and built to last.
No one is believed to have been injured, and, as of October 25, 2021, police are still searching for a suspect. The machine itself, after a quick screen replacement, was operational again just 72h following the event.
