After an ongoing XBox Live argument took a bitter turn, a man in Oakley, Calif., says he ended up with 22 stab wounds and just narrowly missed being shot in the head.
Kevin Kemp, 20, said he was playing a video game while virtually fighting with a 17-year-old family friend when the teenager left the virtual world and physically showed up at Kemp’s house with a knife and a gun, CBS Sacramento reported Tuesday.
The teenager “walks up to my room and he points the gun right at me and takes out the clip and shows his bullet, puts it back in the gun, tries to shoot me and he shot it and it went right past my head,” Kemp told the local television station. “Almost hit me.”
And then the teenager brought out the knife. The unnamed teen allegedly stabbed Kemp 22 times.
“He was covered in blood, he was on the stretcher and what not.” neighbour Dylan Fulkerson told CBS Sacramento of Kemp’s wounds.
The teenage is facing one charge of burglary and two counts of attempted murder in what police are calling an unusual attack.
“Haven’t heard of something happening online, whether it was playing games or chatting, that led to an attack like this,” Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Department employee Jimmy Lee told CBS Sacramento.
The district attorney’s office has announced plans to charge the teen as an adult.
