A man who was playing Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege accidentally butt-dialed 911 and “confessed” to the murder of two people – and cops raided his home.
In a post from the Twitter account GUARD Hunter (@HUN2R), the nerve-inducing situation happened to the gamer known as Elijah as he played the online shooter game at home.
The account also shared a comment from his friend who noted that after dialed 911, an operator overheard him saying, “I killed two people”.
The operator was unaware that this was a harmless comment about the game.
“I was in an Xbox party while this happened. They had [an] AR to his head. They thought it was a double homicide. The cops showed up in less than two minutes. He noticed his dog barking, and he knew he had to walk outside,” the friend explained, according to an image shared by GUARD Hunter.
The moment was also captured on camera.
Naturally, Elijah looked shocked when he went outside.
His friend further explained that he was shaking as the cops searched his house.
“He was frightened for a gun being pointed at him for the first time,” the friend continued before noting that an officer tried to calm Elijah down by asking who his favourite Rainbow Six Siege operator was.
