Long Island man threatened to shoot kid he lost to in 'Fortnite'

45-year-old arrested after threatening to kill a child over Fortnite beatdown

You dead. I will come to your house tonight and fuck your world up.

He has since been charged with second-degree aggravated harassment and acting in a manner to injure a child.

Aliperti reportedly sent threatening text and voice messages to the child through Xbox after the loss.

He was arrested Tuesday morning after allegedly threatening to shoot a boy from a Kings Park intermediate school after losing to him in a video game battle, CBS2's Jennifer McLogan reported.

"Mr. Alperti did not directly threaten the school, but he did threaten the 11-year-old stating he knew where he went to school, so that was good enough for us", said Police Chief Stuart Cameron. He added that Aliperti is going through a "bitter divorce".

Technology expert Lance Ulanoff said: "I'm guessing that this guy got really angry and wasn't thinking and said these disgusting things to this kid".

Unfortunately, that can lead to the development of situations like these, especially when someone takes things too seriously and loses perspective of the fact that it is simply a video game designed for people to have fun playing against each other.

"Meanwhile, they're interacting with people they have never met". Never reveal where you live, not even your town. And parents should monitor their kids' gaming.

It is unclear if Aliperti retained an attorney or has children himself.
