Twitch streamer Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm ended a stream abruptly after reporting that his house had been hit by gunfire for the second time in two days.
Whilst playing the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Royale beta, a loud noise was heard off camera. Upon investigating, Beahm reported back that he would have to end the stream as gunfire had not only hit the house he shares with his family, but that it had broken a window upstairs.
These two clips show the event transpiring:
Beahm later reported on Twitter that his family was safe, and that appropriate measures were being taken:
The Doc and family appreciate everyone’s concerns and well wishes.
Thankfully no one was hurt. The situation is being handled appropriately.
In the meantime, stream will resume tomorrow according to schedule.#FirmHandshakes
