Twitch Streamer Dr. Disrespect Had Shots Fired at House While on Stream

Twitch Streamer Dr. Disrespect Had Shots Fired at House While on Stream

Sadly, Beahm had to abruptly break character during his regular stream yesterday, after assailant shot at his house for the second time in two days.

"I've got to end the broadcast right now, someone shot at our house", Beahm said in the clip shared by Polygon. "Somebody shot at our house and broke the fucking upstairs window. And someone shot again just now and connected with the house upstairs" before the stream cut off.

Video games are already under scrutiny after the Jacksonville Shooting but to make matters worse, it seems some salty gamer has opened fire at Dr Disrespect's house during a live stream. This is the second shot. Because there's more of a direct connection between a Twitch audience and the streamer, there's arguably a stronger sense of community and more immediate interaction.

It's insane Doc's house has been shot at in back-to-back days.

Taking to Twitter, Beahm expressed his appreciation for all of the well wishes, confirming that both him and his family are safe. "Proper Measures are being taken while stream is down for the day". Fox News has reached out to Twitch, as well as Beahm for comment on this story, but did not immediately hear back.

An nearly identical message was posted on Twitter, which reads: "the Doc and family appreciate everyone's concerns and well wishes".

Kotaku reported that local police are on the scene and no one appears to be hurt.

Investigators later determined a BB gun was used in the shootings, and suspect those responsible may have fired from a nearby park, Lt. In the meantime, stream will resume tomorrow according to schedule.#FirmHandshakes'.
