Call of Duty Swatting Suspect Charged with Involuntary Manslaughter

Share

Wichita authorities picked up Tyler Barriss, 25, from the Men's Central jail in Los Angeles at 8:53 a.m.

Tyler Barriss made his first court appearance in Sedgwick County District Court on Friday following extradition from California. He was charged with involuntary manslaughter, giving false alarm and interference with a law enforcement officer. As reported by Glixel, Barriss could face a maximum fine of $300,000 and up to 36 months in prison under the manslaughter charge. Instead, Andrew Finch, 28, opened his front door when he saw police lights outside and didn't know why. His bond has been set to $500,000 for involuntary manslaughter.

Barriss was arrested in a Los Angeles transitional recovery center, law enforcement sources told NBC.

Siegenthaler said swatting calls can put the public and officers at risk and tie up police resources.

In both the Calgary and Wichita cases, police say a man called 911 purporting that he'd shot his father and that he was holding his mother and a sibling at gunpoint. The shooting is still under investigation, police said.

As it so happens, Barriss had been previously arrested for swatting and making bomb threats, which then led to his release in January 2017.

As Rolling Stone points out, Barriss is also being charged for a swatting incident in Calgary, Canada in late December. Calgary police are charging Barriss with mischief and fraud.

The Calgary Police Service allege that Barriss called 911 at about 7:40 p.m. on December 22 and told an operator he killed his father and was holding his mother and younger brother hostage in the 2300 block of 17b Street S.W. 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".
