A force of police and SWAT officers were rapidly deployed to a house in Long Beach a suburb of Long Island after receiving a call from a 17 year old who said that he had just murdered his entire family.
Swatting is apparently a common practice on online video games.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Over 60 officers found a very surprised and confused family who were unaware that they had been murdered, and their 17 year old son who was playing Call of Duty was also confused about the call.
It turned out that the boy had been "Swatted." A term used for a worrying trend recently developed, where emergency personnel are called in to respond to a fake critical emergency call.
As it turned out, the call allegedly came from one of the boys opponents on a game of Call of Duty, who called after losing a march.
