  • The Casa Loma apartment building in southwest Calgary was the scene of a swatting incident on Dec. 22 2017

When police responded to the address, an officer fatally shot 28-year-old Andrew Finch after he opened his door. Barriss's bail is set at $500,000.

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

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

Eyewitness News has learned that Tyler Barriss is coming to Kansas.

He was extradited from the Los Angeles County jail Thursday morning.

We have been able to confirm that Barriss is on a flight coming from California. Barriss has been formally charged with involuntary manslaughter for his part in the death.

Barriss' next court appearance will be later this month.

An investigation is still ongoing as to other people alleged to be involved in a game online, Bennett said, adding that involves a forensic analysis of machines, phones and computers.

There's no timeline for when a decision determining if the officer's action were reasonable will be made, he said.

Bennett says, "Once I review that entirely and make a determination that will be made public, either through charges or through the press conference like I normally do".

"Someone tried to SWAT me and got an innocent man killed, the person said on Twitter according to Rolling Stone". A journalist from Germany was at the hearing Friday.

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. There was a $1.50 wager over the game. 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. 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. It has gained traction in recent years among online gamers.
