A 45 year old man has been arrested in New York after threatening to kill a child after losing to him in the popular video game, Fortnite
Suffolk County Police Chief of Department Stuart Cameron said Michael Aliperti, 45, of Long Island, threatened to go to the boy's home and harm him and also alluded to his school.
The alleged threats were made through text messages and voicemails, and the school went on lockdown on "an abundance of caution"
PARENTS: We all know most kids are loving Fortnite right now, but it's important to talk to them regularly about their habits and what they experience online, especially in online gaming.
We have no idea how the 45 year old man got this kids number, but that doesn't matter, the fact of the matter is, if your kids plays Fortnite, they are very likely to be playing against grown adults.
Watch your kids gaming closely. Talk to them about what they hear and feel while they play. Let's keep our kids safe.
