On October 23, a Twitch streamer playing League of Legends rushed away from their PC to confront a home invader, whom he then reportedly shot.

A number of unsettling and scary moments have been captured on Twitch via live streams. These include Dr Disrespect’s house being shot at, IRL streamers being chased or beaten by strangers, and numerous personalities being the victim of swatters.

Streaming can be a dangerous hobby, and Twitch streamer MattDamnit reportedly experienced a life-or-death situation while playing a game of League of Legends.

Viewers could hear the streamer tell someone to “get the f**k out of here” before the first supposed gunshot was fired. Four more shots would be fired off in quick succession a few moments after that, followed by a woman’s voice ordering someone to stay inside the house before making a phone call to the police.

Police sirens can be heard at around 18 minutes into the stream and muffled chatter can be heard in the background for the remainder of the broadcast. After an hour and a half, Matt would return to his stream but would be cut off mid-sentence as the broadcast came to an abrupt end.
