Suspect in fatal hoax call in Wichita makes court appearance

The Los Angeles Police Department was investigating Barriss on allegations that he made similar calls in late 2017, and had planned a meeting with federal prosecutors before arresting the 25-year-old in connection with the Kansas incident.

The man accused of "swatting" a Wichita, Kansas, home - resulting in the shooting death of a 28-year-old father of two on December 28 - has been charged with involuntary manslaughter, reporting a false alarm and interference with a law enforcement officer, according to The Wichita Eagle.

Police in Wichita, Kan., charged Barriss with making a false alarm after someone called 911 with a similar shooting-and-kidnapping report at the home of Andrew Finch.

The booking report shows Barriss was booked into jail at 3:14 p.m.

When police responded to the address, an officer fatally shot 28-year-old Andrew Finch after he opened his door.

Police have said they believed Finch was armed when he moved his hands toward his waistband and then motioned toward officers. Barriss, who has previously faced charges of making fake bomb threats, was arrested in California on December 29 and extradited to Kansas yesterday.

Glendale police believe he was involved in at least two dozen other swatting and hoax calls around Southern California. Instead, one gamer is said to have provided two others with the Wichita address where Finch was killed.

Swatting is the term used by gamers when one player makes a fake 9-1-1 call and directs police to the address of a person who may have offended them in an online game. Finch appears to have no connection to the game or the dispute arising from it. The Calgary resident said that she was targeted by Barriss due to her online persona.

The caller who phoned Wichita police said in a relatively calm voice that he had shot his father in the head and was holding his mother and a sibling at gunpoint, according to the 911 recording.
