'Xbox rage' sends game player, 30, on shooting spree; neighbor’s home struck: report

A Tennessee man was arrested Wednesday after he flew into a rage over an Xbox video game and fired over a dozen rounds from two different handguns into his bedroom ceiling and walls, a report said.

Casey L. Jones, 30, had been playing on his Microsoft Xbox when he suddenly reached a breaking point, screaming at the game and smashing the console with his fist, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported, citing court records.

Jones then went up to his bedroom nightstand, picked up a Springfield XDS handgun and fired several rounds into the ceiling, the paper reported.

Court records state Jones made threats of self-harm, which he has a history of making.

In September, a 45-year-old man from Long Island, N.Y., was arrested for allegedly threatening to shoot an 11-year-old boy at his school after losing to him in Fortnite, an online video game.
