Gamer's 'Call Of Duty' Livesteam Interrupted As He's Shot At In Real Life
A gamer was forced to pause his Twitch livestream after the action outside started to resemble what was going on in the game, when actual shots were fired at his house.
Gamer Dr DisRespect, who plays wearing his trademark wig and glasses, was playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 when a loud noise could be heard in the background prompting him to get up and go and check it out.
He returned to the camera, minus his wig and glasses, and said: "I've got to end the broadcast right now, someone shot at our house.
"Broke the fucking upstairs window.
"This is the second shot - someone shot yesterday at our fucking house and someone shot again right now - connected with the house, upstairs."
Dr DisRespect, real name Guy Beahm, lives in California with his wife and daughter.
He later took to Twitter to reassure concerned fans that he and his family were OK and that no one was hurt. He also confirmed that the situation was being 'handled appropriately'.
Other gamers quickly commented on the post to say they were glad to hear the news that no one was hurt.
A police spokesperson confirmed to Variety that a deputy had been sent to the property following the incident and added that no medics were called. They also confirmed that this was the second call out in two days.
Earlier this year Dr DisRespect was 'swatted' - the term used to describe making a hoax call to authorities in an attempt to get the SWAT team to attend - during a livestream.
He was forced to tell his audience that he would be away for 'one sec' before disappearing off screen for around 15 minutes, during which time the words 'sheriff's department' could be heard, before he turned the webcam face down and the stream was cut.
He later returned to the stream and apologised to fans, jokingly saying it was 'Internet problems', which I guess is mostly true.
