In a video sure to shock, an online gamer recently found himself unknowingly having his door kicked in by a SWAT team. The best part about the whole story is that he was streaming video live during the raid and the entire incident was caught on tape.
The raid took place as the man who goes by the name “Kootra,” had begun a multiplayer first person shooter game. After just a few moments, the gamer hears a noise before saying “it sounds like they’re kicking in doors.” He eventually said that he thinks he was about to get “swatted,” and he did.
Placing his hands in the air before having his door kicked in, SWAT officers soon filled the room demanding the gamer put his hands up. Apparently the officers had been called to the office building after receiving reports of an active shooting – after clearing the building, they found no such evidence that anything of the sort had occurred.
Some theories suggest that the raid was the result of hackers penetrating the 911 system and sending out orders for the SWAT team to deploy, an act known as, “swatting”.
