Man Shoots from Balcony – level 1

29-04-2020 07:00

A man in Kent, UK, shoots from his balcony. It happens on Wednesday morning. The man is in his 30s. He is making a video. In the video, he shows his guns.

Then, he goes on the balcony. He starts shooting. He is filming himself. He is shouting. The man is streaming it live on his Instagram.

People can see the man on the balcony. They call the police. The police ask people to run away. The police close the area. There is a police helicopter in the sky.

The police go to the man’s apartment. They arrest him. They find many guns in the apartment. Some guns are fake. They are not real.

Difficult words: stream live (when something is happening and other people can see it on the Internet at the same moment), arrest (when police take somebody who they think does something bad), fake (when something looks like a real thing but it is not real).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
