A 14-year-old boy shot and killed his whole family, including his mother and two little sisters, while reportedly “under the influence” of the online game PUBG. According to authorities in the capital of Pakistan’s Punjab province,
Last week, Nahid Mubarak, a 45-year-old health worker, was discovered dead in Lahore’s Kahna neighborhood with her 22-year-old son Taimur and two daughters aged 17 and 11.
According to investigators, her teenage son, who was unharmed and is the family’s sole survivor, turned out to be the murderer.
“The PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds) addict boy confessed to having killed her mother and siblings under the influence of the game. He has developed some psychological issues because of spending long hours of the day playing the online game,” the statement said.
Police said Nahid was a divorcee and often used to admonish the boy for not paying attention to his studies and spending most of his time playing PUBG.
“On the day of the incident, Nahid scolded the boy over the matter. Later, the boy took out her mother’s pistol from a cupboard and shot her and his three other siblings died in their sleep.
“Next morning, the boy raised an alarm and the neighbors called the police. The boy that time told police that he was on the upper story of the house and did not know how his family was killed,” the statement said.
Nahid bought the licensed pistol for her family’s safety, according to police, who added that the weapon has yet to be found from a drain where the child put it.
