Swatting Suspect Charged With Manslaughter Over Death Of Andrew Finch

Call of Duty: WW2 “The Resistance” DLC Coming in Early 2018

Barriss is now being held on a $500,000 bond.

Tyler Barriss made his first court appearance in Kansas via video link from jail on Friday following his extradition from Los Angeles.

Tyler Barriss, 25, was arrested in South Los Angeles on December 29, less than 24 hours after someone called Wichita police claiming there was a homicide and hostage situation at 1033 W. McCormick.

Peter Siegenthaler said there's a good indication that the accused - Tyler Raj Barriss - is the same man charged in a similar incident six days later that led police in Wichita, Kan., to fatally shoot an unarmed man. He was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail on Thursday afternoon.

The government hasn't confirmed whether the top-secret satellite did indeed fall out of orbit and reenter Earth's atmosphere. NROL-47 will join the Future Imagery Architecture (FIA) satellite constellation, which flies under the code name Topaz.

Barriss is wanted in Kansas for placing a "swatting" call that led to the deadly shooting of 28-year-old Andrew Finch. Asked if he had any questions after his charge was formally read, Barriss answered, "no, I don't".

The shooting remains under investigation.

The case, Bennett said, has been unique and there's not a lot of previous case law to reference. Barriss, who was allegedly given the address by one of the players and asked to "swat" the home, is suspected to have made the call, claiming to be the perpetrator of a homicide and hostage situation and giving police an address that he believed belonged to the other gamer.

The phony hostage call was made as a "prank" known as swatting.

The Kansas City Police Department received a 9-1-1 call alleging that a family was being held hostage after the father had been killed by an intruder. It has gained traction in recent years among online gamers. Police have said he moved a hand toward his waistband and an officer, fearing he was reaching for a gun, fired a single shot and killed him.

Only that the officer is on paid administrative leave.

Siegenthaler said swatting calls can put the public and officers at risk and tie up police resources.

Barriss was extradited from his home in California where he faces involuntary manslaughter charges under the rules of the state of Kansas.
