STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- Police in Sweden raided an apartment after receiving a report of gunfire and cries of help only to find several teenagers playing a computer game.

The teenagers were playing the game "Call of Duty Saturday" night when one of the boy's characters was killed after being shot several times and was left laying on the floor, screaming "help, help, help," Swedish news agency TT reported.

Passersby heard the game and thought it was real and called police.

A 10-person police unit was dispatched to the apartment and carried out a raid there, forcing the boys outside.

After the teenagers were out of the apartment, they were able to explain to the police that they were just playing a game.

Police left the apartment without taking anyone into custody or writing any citations.

Faaaaaaail.

But seriously, I can't be the only one wondering how loud the volume must have been in order for someone passing by to hear it from outside. There WAS a massacre in there, and it was carried out against their poor eardrums.

yum_tea Does Sweden have so little violent crime that people can't tell the difference between the sounds of a videogame and real gunshots? The videogame usually has epic music in the background and loud explosions, come on people. :/

Most people can tell the difference between shoots being fierd in real as oppsed to those coming from a video game.

Either the teenagers were playing extremely loud, or the people who heard them must have had their ears enlarged. o - o
