Such a claim is ridiculous, yet surprisingly well supported, and by apparently rational and well informed people. They are all so, so wrong. Any research or experiments do not stand up academically. The increase in media violence is having no effect on real violence. And there is literally not one direct valid piece of evidence proving a link.
