The person who called in the fake incident at a Kansas City home, Tyler Barriss has been charged with involuntary manslaughter, alongside two other counts of calling in a fake incident to police.
Barriss was initially arrested in December in Los Angeles after he ‘swatted’ a wrong address in Kansas, leading to the death of an innocent 28 year old man. Police said he called in a fake incident to their offices after a dispute over a $1.50 Call of Duty wager.
Police still are investigating the incident as to why a 7 and 1/2 year police veteran open fired in this situation. The officer in question was placed on administrative leave pending the completion of the investigation.
Barriss could face a hefty fine and anywhere from 31 to 316 months in prison for involuntary manslaughter charge according to Kansas laws, since this is a felony charge. His bond currently sits at $500,000.
