Because there’s nothing more intimidating than a mother with a loaded gun protecting her children, here is the story of Troy George Skinner and how he ended up with a slug in his neck. After traveling halfway across the world to confront his ‘beloved,’ the 25-year-old New Zealand gamer will likely end up in federal prison.
New Zealand Gamer Armed with Knife And Pepper Spray, Authorities Declared
On the 22nd of June, Goochland County sheriff’s deputies were called to a house by a teen’s mother who shot a man. The individual had to be taken to the hospital because he sustained a gunshot wound to the neck.
The story of how the individual ended up with a slug in his neck in Virginia, begin several months ago. An avid gamer, Skinner, spent most of his time meeting people who shared his passion. That’s how he got in contact with a 14-year-old girl from Virginia.
For several months, the two of them chatted and played their favorite games together. However, at the beginning of June, the girl told Skinner that she doesn’t want to talk to him anymore.
Of course, enraged by the fact that the girl blocked him on Discord, the man traveled from New Zealand all the way to the United States to confront the teenage girl.
Before meeting the unnamed teen, the New Zealand gamer went to Walmart. From there he purchased a roll of duct tape, a can of pepper spray, and a hunting knife.
On the day of the attack, Skinner knocked on the front door and asked for help. The girl’s mother refused to open the door and told him to leave. Not even her saying that she’s got a loaded gun didn’t convince him.
After checking the basement door, Skinner used a brick to smash a front door window. The woman shot him twice, hitting him in the neck. The doctors say that he’ll probably leave.
