This is the moment heavily armed police officers stormed into a home in Long Beach, New York, after receiving a call saying: "I just killed my mother and I might shoot more people."
"Some guy threatened to Swat him ... He was pissed that he had lost," according to Castillo's brother, and police suspect the caller traced his home address by following his IP address.
"It was probably just one evil little kid," one cop told the New York Post. "It sucked up a lot of resources, caused traffic problems. It turned out to be a hoax," he said. Police are now trying to trace the hoax caller.
Michael Tagney, Long Beach policer commander, said: "In this … bizarre world of Swatting, you get points for the helicopter, for the police cars, for the SWAT team, for the type of entry ... It's very sophisticated. Unfortunately, it's very dangerous."
