Twitch streamer Guy 'DrDisrespect' Beahm was forced to cut a livestream short last night after gunshots were fired at his home.
Beahm was broadcasting beta footage from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's new battle royale mode, when a noise erupts from somewhere behind him. He quickly moves away to check what's happening, before returning without his signature wig.
"I've got to end the broadcast right now, someone shot at our house," Beahm says. "Broke the f*cking upstairs window. This is the second shot, someone shot yesterday, at our fucking house and someone shot again right now, connected with the house, upstairs."
Beahm then said he thinks someone is driving by and taking shots.
Reports from PC Gamer confirm that local authorities were dispatched to Beahm's residence shortly after the gunfire. It also confirmed that this is the second callout to the house in two days.
While his broadcast ended early, Beahm later tweeted that no one in the house was hurt and that the "situation was being handled appropriately". Beahm lives with his wife and his young daughter.
