Deadly Kansas 'Swatting' Suspect Charged With Manslaughter

Tyler Barriss seen at an extradition hearing in Los Angeles is accused of making a

Calgary police said Tuesday they have charged Tyler Raj Barriss, 25, of Los Angeles, with mischief and fraud charges following the incident on December 22 that saw officers along with police dogs surround the unnamed woman's apartment.

Barriss is wanted in Kansas for placing a "swatting" call that led to the deadly shooting of 28-year-old Andrew Finch. He was also charged with giving false alarm and interference with a law enforcement officer.

A message left for the local public defender's office wasn't immediately returned.

Barriss was given a fake address after two competitive CoD players got into an argument over an online 'Wager match, ' where he would eventually call in a phony hostage situation, leading to a massive police response to the area. He then gave them an address for 28-year-old Andrew Finch, who was shot and killed by an officer when he answered the door.

An officer discharged his weapon after Finch reached for his waistband, Deputy Chief Troy Livingston of the Wichita Police Department said during a news conference on Friday.

Barriss has also been linked to swatting incidents in IL and New Hampshire, according to court records.

Barris has a history of making such hoax calls, which are sometimes called "swatting". Barriss believed Finch's address to be that of a Call of Duty player that he was attempting to harass when another player commissioned him to do so. Calgary police are charging Barriss with mischief and fraud.

Police say a man called 911 on December 22 claiming he had shot his father and was holding his mom and younger brother hostage. The woman involved in the Calgary incident reportedly told police that Barriss targeted her because of her online presence, according to Rolling Stone.

Barriss waived extradition to Kansas last week.

Calgary tactical officers descended on the neighborhood, evacuating the surrounding area before a woman at the home also called police to warn them she believed she was the target of a fake call.
