Call of Duty Swatting Suspect Charged with Involuntary Manslaughter

Call of Duty Swatting Suspect Charged with Involuntary Manslaughter

A fugitive-from-justice warrant filed by Los Angeles County prosecutors says Barriss was charged in Kansas on December 29 with the felony of making a false alarm.

Barriss is being held on a $500,000 bond. As reported by Glixel, Barriss could face a maximum fine of $300,000 and up to 36 months in prison under the manslaughter charge.

In the days following Finch's murder, Los Angeles resident Tyler Rai Barriss was arrested and extradited to Kansas in connection with the crime. It has gained traction in recent years among online gamers. Police officers who responded surrounded a Wichita address provided by the caller and fatally shot the man who came out of the home, Andrew Finch. Barriss provided a false address to police.

Barriss had a reputation for helping people gain revenge against online enemies and gaming opponents through swatting - placing a hoax phone call about a unsafe situation in order to trigger a massive police response at an address to frighten its occupants.

There is no update regarding punishment for the Call of Duty player that apparently provided Finch's address as his own.

Neither Barriss nor Finch was involved in the disputed game, according to the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

Eyewitness News has learned that Tyler Barriss is coming to Kansas. Police revealed few other details but said investigators identified a suspect who had made contact online with the woman earlier that day and that she was targeted because of her "online persona".

Police report that Barriss made the initial emergency call, stating that he had killed his father and was holding the rest of his family hostage.

When he raised his hands suddenly, police say, a officer who was standing in a driveway across the street shot him.
