    A man in the US has been arrested after a deadly end to a prank telephone call.

    The suspect made a false 911 call to the police, reporting a murder and hostage situation.

    When officers arrived at the scene, they shot and killed a 28-year-old man.

    It's believed that a dispute over an online video game sparked the standoff.
