Gamers killing each other in online games is common, the name is also playing games.
But to kill in the real world, that would be too much.
However, that is the tragedy that occurred in the United States.
Matthew Thane (18) was shot dead on Tuesday (August 25) at 06.00 am at his home, Flower Mound, Texas, United States.
Reporting from News.com Australia, Monday (31 August 2020) the police said the 23-year-old perpetrator knew the victim.
Both are gamers.
The perpetrator is about to be arrested on Wednesday (August 26) evening in Pleasanton, California.
However, when the police broke into the house at 11.00 pm at night, the perpetrator was also found dead.
It is suspected that the perpetrator committed suicide with a gun.
It is inconceivable that an online gamer would be willing to drive back and forth as far as 5,400 km from California to Texas just to kill other gamers.
Police found the perpetrator’s cell phone that became evidence of murder in Texas, as reported by Mercury News.
Police at Flower Mound said Thane’s shooter was wearing a helmet and jeans.
He threatened the victim with a propane gas cylinder to get out of his house, then shot the victim.
The police believe the two of them met through online games.
Thane is known to be active as a game streamer on Twitch.
Police are investigating whether the commotion between the two was triggered by an online game.
Wow, this is an important lesson.
When it comes to online games, losing wins is normal. If there are remarks, don’t take it personally.
Also, keep the feelings of fellow gamers.
Don’t let the matter of playing online games become a serious matter that violates the law.
