Disrespect abruptly stops gaming after saying his house was shot at

Disrespect abruptly stops gaming after saying his house was shot at

"I've got to end the broadcast right now, someone shot at our house". Several moments later, he returns, without the mullet wig and glasses worn as his Dr Disrespect character, informing his audience that he will have to end the stream, adding, "this is the second shot". Dr DisRespect, whose real name is Guy Beahm, was playing the game's new Blackout battle royale mode when a bullet crashed through the upstairs window of his home, according to the streamer.

PC Gamer contacted local authorities and confirmed a deputy was dispatched to Beahm's home, as did a reporter from Polygon.

Investigators later determined a BB gun was likely used in the shootings, and suspect those responsible fired from a nearby park, Baggs said.

Alongside this, his subscribers are referred to as members of "The Slick Daddy Club" and over a year after being on Twitch, Dr DisRespect's channel had over 1.2 million followers. Thankfully, no one was hurt either time. The situation is being handled appropriately. "Someone's shot at our house", the YouTuber declared. In the meantime, stream will resume tomorrow according to schedule.#FirmHandshakes'. The title of the Twitch stream has since been updated to read "Doc and Family Are Safe", and safety measures are underway while the stream remains down for the rest of the day.

The twitch logo is seen at the offices of Twitch Interactive Inc, a social video platform and gaming community owned by Amazon, in San Francisco, California, U.S., March 6, 2017.

Beahm was streaming as usual last night when he suddenly disappeared from the camera and came back to tell viewers he was giving up for the day as his house had just been shot at. Swatting is when a fake report is called in as a way to lead police to an unsuspecting victim's home.
