Suspect In Deadly Fake 911 Call Formally Charged

That gamer contacted Barriss, who made the false call that sent police to Finch, a father of two. As reported by Glixel, Barriss could face a maximum fine of $300,000 and up to 36 months in prison under the manslaughter charge.

One week before the killing in Kansas, Barriss was charged with mischief and fraud by police in Calgary, Canada, for a similar prank.

"Justice for the Finch family constitutes criminal charges against the shooting officer and any other liable officers as well as damages against the city of Wichita for the policies and practices of its Police Department", the lawyer, Andrew Stroth, who is representing the family, told The Associated Press.

On January 9, arrest warrants were issued for 25-year-old Tyler Barriss of Los Angeles, California who had previously been charged in connection with a suspected swatting incident on December 28 where a member of the Wichita Police Department fatally shot an innocent man.

49ers Reuben Foster arrested in Alabama
According to Tuscaloosa police, officers encountered Foster near the intersection of Highway 69 South and Oscar Baxter Drive. Foster appeared in 10 games for the 49ers as a rookie this year, recording 59 tackles and defending one pass.

Police have said 28-year-old Andrew Finch was shot after a prankster called 911 with a fake story about a shooting and kidnapping at Finch's Wichita home on December 28.

It remains unclear why Finch's address was the one provided to police. He also said prosecutors are reviewing the police officer's decision to shoot Finch.

The case, Bennett said, has been unique and there's not a lot of previous case law to reference. There was a $1.50 wager over the game. A man claiming he was responsible for the swatting said he was given an address on McCormick Street by another player, he said during an interview with the DramaAlert channel on YouTube.

Barris placed a report of a murder and hostage situation with the Wichita police following a dispute between two Call of Duty players over a lost match. It has gained traction in recent years among online gamers. Officers said Finch was ordered to raise his hands but moved them to his waist.

Swatting has long posed a problem for authorities - the Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates roughly 400 cases occur annually - though Finch's death appears to be the first to result from the risky prank.

Only that the officer is on paid administrative leave.

Finch's death also says something about the dangers of police violence.
