Video game stream captures SWAT response to fake 911 call

Posted: Updated:
LITTLETON, Colo. (WHDH) - A man in Colorado was doing a live steam of the game he was playing when something out of the ordinary happened; SWAT stormed his apartment.

Police say they received a call from a man who reported he had shot his girlfriend and tied up his friend.

Their response was all caught on camera and shown live to everyone watching the stream.

“We did not find any indication or any evidence that any shooting had occurred,” Littleton Police Chief Doug Stephens said.

It is believed that the 911 call was made as a prank and now the FBI is working with local police to track the origins of the call.
