Fortnite world champ swatted at PA home

POTTSGROVE, Pa. — The Pennsylvania teen who won $3 million as the first Fortnite World Cup solo champion has been swatted.

Kyle Giersdorf was live-streaming on Saturday when his father interrupted the 16-year-old to say armed police were at the door of their Pottsgrove home.

Upper Pottsgrove Police Cpl. Albert Werner told USA Today a caller told police “he was Kyle and said he had shot his father multiple times.” Police called the home before entering and the teen’s father said everything was fine.

Werner says the call came from outside the country.
