Long Island man threatened to shoot child following Fortnite loss

108 West Neck Road in Huntington N.Y.

The man, Michael Aliperti, then threatened the boy by telling him that he was going to shoot him and "stated that he knew where he went to school".

Police say an 11-year-old Kings Park boy reported that the 45-year-old sent him threatening text and voice messages after the boy beat him during a game of Fortnite. Police Chief of Department Stuart Cameron said authorities found a plastic pellet gun in the home. He pleaded not guilty to aggravated harassment and acting in a manner to injure a child. Cameron said there was an increased police presence at the boy's school.

'We took this as a school threat, ' Cameron said.

"That was done out of an abundance of caution".

Aliperti was scheduled to be arraigned later on the 18th, although as of now, new information about the case has not been revealed.

Aliperti is now being held on $2,500 bond and faces fines for both charges, which are misdemeanors, with the potential to spend time in a county jail.

"Salty language is a two-way street and it's normal behavior in the gaming community", his attorney said.

According to his attorney, Andrew Karpf, Aliperti is now going through a hard divorce, and is thus under a lot of stress.

Bail was set at $2,500 and an order of protection was issued for the victim.

Bradford Betz is an editor for Fox News.

Aliperti is due back in court on October 4.
