The shooting occurred over the course of two separate days, with the first instance being reported at 7:15 a.m. on Monday, September 10, and the second at 10:15 a.m. on Tuesday, September 11.

No suspects have yet been named, and police have no indication that the shootings were intentionally targeting the streamer due to his online presence.

The Doc was in the middle of a live stream when the second shooting occurred. Clips of the event were spread throughout Twitch and subsequently the internet at large, where bullets hitting the house are clearly audible.

The Doc appeared to be visibly shaken by this incident and told his viewers that he would have to end the stream.

“I've got to end the broadcast right now,” he stated to his audience. “Someone shot at our house, broke the fucking 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."
