“Call of Duty” Video Game Triggers Call to Swedish Police

Activision(STOCKHOLM) -- Ten police officers raced to an apartment in Stockholm, Sweden, Saturday night after receiving a report of gunfire and cries for help.  But what they found hardly qualified as an emergency.

The Swedish news agency TT reports that when police arrived, they found several teens playing the popular video game Call of Duty with the volume turned up loud. 

One of the boy's characters had been shot several times and was screaming "help, help, help."  A passerby heard the screams, thought they were real and called the cops. 

The teens explained it was all just a game and the officers left without making any arrests or issuing any citations.
