A GAMER butt-dialed cops while playing a shooter video game and said he “killed two people,” prompting police to swarm his home, a video shows.
The man, Elijah, reportedly called 911 by accident while he was playing the video game Rainbow Six Siege with friends.
Authorities heard him say “I killed two people” on the call and believed it was a double homicide, Elijah’s friend claimed on social media.
Police arrived in less than two minutes, according to Elijah’s friend.
The friend said Elijah went outside after hearing his dog barking.
Home surveillance footage, shared by Guard Hunter – producer of the company The Guard – showed Elijah walking outside his home with his hands up.
Elijah’s friend said that cops had an assault rifle pointed at the gamer’s head.
He called out to police: “I was playing the game and I butt-dialed the phone.
“That was my bad.”
The gamer told police there was no one else in the home with him.
Cops searched Elijah’s house and while detaining him, an officer asked “who’s your favorite operator,” referring to the characters in the video game.
Elijah was frightened by the police visit. His friend said, “he was shaking for 4 hours.”
He was scared of the “gun being pointed at him for the first time,” his friend said.
After the video was shared on Twitter, users started to make light of the incident.
“The cop asked him who his favorite operator was [crying face emoji] no chance bro idk what id even say , say the wrong operator n ur cooked,” one wrote.
Another gave the suggestion: “Bro needs to learn the word eliminated,” instead of saying kill.
Some commenters couldn’t believe that Elijah butt-dialed cops.
Hunter, who posted the video, said in the comment section that he assumed the police were called with the “function when your phone is locked and you can press a button to call emergency services.”
