ROBLox paintballs are a popular game that can be played by anyone, and while they may have been designed to be played with a friend, they can also be played solo.
On Sunday, a ROBLX player named Alex Diamantis was in the middle of his paintball match when his paintballs exploded in the air, killing him instantly.
Diamantes was playing paintball with his friends in the town of Gareau, Louisiana, when his gun malfunctioned, which sent his paint guns flying into the air.
He was able to get his paint gun back on his gun but it was still empty, and he died instantly, according to a Facebook post by Diamants’ friend.
While many paintballers are playing with a partner, Diamantis was alone.
A spokesperson for the Louisiana National Guard told NBC affiliate WLBT that Diamantes death was the result of a tragic accident, and the state is working to get a medical examiner to conduct an investigation into the cause of the accident.
The state’s Attorney General’s office said the state will work with the FBI to help the investigation.
“While it is difficult to determine what the exact circumstances were in the accident, it is important to understand that the individual involved is deceased and we are deeply saddened to learn about his death,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
