1:30 PM PT: The Blast has obtained a photo of Dr. Disrespect’s house, and one of the glass barriers lining the property is clearly shattered.
11:50 AM PT: Law enforcement in San Diego tell The Blast sheriffs responded at 10:42 AM to Dr. Disrespect’s home for a gunshot through a window. We’re told nobody was hurt or transported to the hospital, and a deputy is currently on scene.
Cops confirm a similar call was placed at the home Monday for reports of gunshots, and the San Diego County Sheriffs are currently investigating both incidents.
Twitch gamer Dr. Disrespect was streaming live on the air to thousands of viewers when someone allegedly drove by and fired shots into his home, and he says it’s the second time in two days.
Dr. Disrespect — real name Guy Beahm — is one of the most popular gamers around and Tuesday afternoon he was streaming the new “Call of Duty: Black Ops 4” Blackout Beta when pops could be heard off camera. Beahm immediately looked worried and went to investigate the shots.
When he returned to the stream, he announced that his house had been struck by gunfire, and it was the second time in two days. He claims this shooting broke an upstairs window, and he was understandably furious over the situation.
Beahm has a wife and young daughter, it’s unclear if they were home at the time but a woman can be heard yelling in the background of the video. The doc said he would be shutting the stream down while he handles the incident.
After his channel, which is followed by almost 3 million people, went offline, a statement on the page said, “Doc and Family Are Safe. Proper Measures are be taken while stream is down for the day.”
The shooting is the latest real-life violence centered around video games since the shooting rampage in Jacksonville last month during a Madden gaming tournament.
