A few helicopters, more than 60 officers and several members of the Nassau County's special operations unit surrounded Rafael Castillo's house for two hours after he admitted to killing his mother and possibly others.
Problem is, that admission was made by a sore Call of Duty loser who impersonated 17 years old Rafael and told the police through on Skype that "I just killed my mother and I might shoot more people."
Needless to say, the police arrived to the house to find Rafael's mother and brother safe and sound. In fact, the boy himself was not aware of all the commotion that happened under his window as he was still immersed in his CoD session and had his headphones on.
Interestingly enough, the prank caller informed Rafael about what he was going to do before contacting the police. "Some guy threatened to swat him. He was pissed that he had lost," Castillo's brother, Jose, told The Post.
"We went and checked out the place and there was nothing there," a police officer admitted. "It sucked up a lot of resources, caused traffic problems. It turned out to be a hoax."
