California suspect in fatal hoax 911 call sent to Kansas

Call of Duty: WW2 “The Resistance” DLC Coming in Early 2018

Twenty-five-year-old Tyler Barriss was charged today in Kansas for involuntary manslaughter and two other counts in the wake of a swatting call that led police to kill an unarmed 28-year-old at his home. But causing a false alarm is not among the "inherently risky felonies" listed under the state's felony-murder statute, so prosecutors sought the manslaughter charge instead, Bennett said during a phone interview.

Kansas state law says that involuntary manslaughter is "a killing that was unintentional which resulted from recklessness or during another unlawful act". He could end up with a felony conviction of 36 months in jail & a $300k fine.

Records show Barriss is being held on a $500,000 bond.

Swatting is the term used by gamers when one player makes a fake 9-1-1 call and directs police to the address of a person who may have offended them in an online game.

The hoax call reportedly was made after a dispute over a small wager online in a "Call of Duty" online video game tournament, according to Dexerto, a news service focused on gaming.

Conte, Mourinho 'out of their minds'
Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti also won 25, with Mourinho drawing and Ancelotti losing their 31st home games in charge. The Blues have been goal shy in the Premier League having scored 41 goals, the fifth most in the top flight.

There is no update regarding punishment for the Call of Duty player that apparently provided Finch's address as his own. That officer is now on paid administrative leave.

Barriss also faces charges in Calgary, Canada, according to The Globe and Mail, as spotted by Rolling Stone.

Several players later took to Twitter claiming that one gamer had made the call, but rather than giving his own address, he gave what he thought was the address of the other player with whom he had been arguing.

The Los Angeles Police Department was investigating Barriss on allegations that he made similar calls in late 2017, and had planned a meeting with federal prosecutors before arresting the 25-year-old in connection with the Kansas incident. Barriss was allegedly targeting the home of a young woman he met online, authorities in Calgary said.
