  • A 45-year-old New York man has been arrested for threatening to shoot an 11-year-old boy over Fortnite according to police. Huntington resident Michael Aliperti allegedly made the threats by text and voice messages through Xbox after the boy beat him

"You dead. I will come to your house tonight and f*** your world up", Aliperti said in one of the messages sent to the 11 year old boy.

Police in Suffolk County say 45-year-old threatened to go to the boy's home to harm him and alluded to his school.

Gamer rage is one thing, but a 45-year-old NY man took things way beyond the legal limits when he allegedly threatened to murder an 11-year-old child who beat him in an online game yesterday.

With 125 million global players, Fortnite has become a cultural phenomenon, and, police say, highly addictive and overly competitive for some, including a Huntington man by the name of Michael Aliperti.

Charges also include "acting in a manner to injure a child" after Aliperti reportedly sent threatening messages through Xbox following a loss in Fortnite: Battle Royale, police claim. Cameron said there was an increased police presence at the boy's school.

Popular tech YouTuber Marques Brownlee (aka MKBHD) posted a video revealing the unboxing and the contents of the iPhone Xs Max. Finally, according to Kuo, the Apple Watch Series 4 has been in higher demand than previously expected.

'We took this as a school threat, ' Cameron said. "That was done out of an abundance of caution", Cameron said.

Aliperti was scheduled to be arraigned later on the 18th, although as of now, new information about the case has not been revealed. He pleaded not guilty, according to the Suffolk County district attorney's office.

The alleged threats were made through text messages and online voice messages at about 9 pm on Monday, according to local media.
