Call of Duty Swatting Suspect Charged with Involuntary Manslaughter

LA Man Charged in Kansas for Fatal Hoax Call

While making his first court appearance in Witchita, Kansas, Tyler Barriss, a 25-year-old from Los Angeles, California, received the charge for involuntary manslaughter over his involvement with the aforementioned swatting incident that led to the death of 28-year-old Andrew Finch. He was charged with involuntary manslaughter, giving false alarm and interference with a law enforcement officer. Just one week before the deadly Wichita call, Barriss reportedly called in a false threat at a Calgary woman's apartment. The county District Attorney Marc Bennett wants to leave no stone unturned. 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. The address was actually that of 28 year-old Andrew Finch, who was shot by police when he answered his door. 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.

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. The address turned out to be unrelated to anyone involved with the dispute, however, and instead led police to Finch.

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