However, what makes this situation even worse is the report that Aliperti may have mentioned the boy's school. According to Long Island News 12, Stuart said "Mr. Aliperti did not directly threaten the school, but he did threaten the 11-year-old stating he knew where he went to school, so that was good enough for us".

He allegedly told the youngster "I will come to your house tonight and f*** you up", ABC 7 reporter Stacey Sager tweeted.

Aliperti was charged with second-degree aggravated harassment and acting in a manner to injure a child, according to Suffolk County Police Department.

A NY man was arrested yesterday after threatening to shoot an 11-year-old boy he had lost to in the video game "Fortnite", according to police. Police say that when the boy took one of the virtual guns away from Aliperti in the game, Aliperti became angry and threatened to harm the boy.

His neighbors were bothered by the allegations.

Cameron also cautioned parents to monitor their children's video game playing and to be aware of their online opponents. Aliperti, whose Xbox Live gamertag is TrickedMarker70, threatened to kill the child at both his home and his school, which led to an increase police presence at RJO Intermediate School in Long Island. He was ordered to stay away from the child and his young group playing Fortnite.
