Suspect in fatal Call of Duty 'swatting' incident charged with manslaughter

Tyler Barriss of Los Angeles faces three charges in connection with a deadly officer-involved shooting in Wichita

Tyler Barriss, 25, made his first appearance in Sedgwick County District Court following extradition from California.

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

The Los Angeles man at the center of what is believed to be the first fatal "swatting" incident in the US has been charged with manslaughter in connection with a hoax phone call that led to a deadly shooting in Kansas, records show.

According to online jail records, Tyler Barriss is charged with involuntary manslaughter; giving false alarm, notifying emergency services and interfering with a law enforcement officer, falsely reporting a felony. Barriss will appear in court on Friday to be read his charges.

Police responded to the address, where an officer fatally shot 28-year-old Andrew Finch after Finch opened his door. He was booked in Sedgwick County Jail on Thursday afternoon, according to The Wichita Eagle, and his bond is $500,000. Barriss, who has previously faced charges of making fake bomb threats, was arrested in California on December 29 and extradited to Kansas yesterday. "He doesn't play video games", Finch said.
