Man shot dead after prank caller sent armed police to his house

Man shot dead after prank caller sent armed police to his house”

The Los Angeles Police Department confirms it arrested Barriss Friday, Dec. 29, 2017, in connection with a deadly "swatting" call in Wichita, Kan., Thursday, Dec. 28. Finch had not been involved in the game, they said.

UMG Gaming operates online gaming tournaments, including one for the Call of Duty game. Livingston didn't mention discuss the online game but said investigators were tracking online leads.

Chief Livingston, speaking at a news conference, said the hoax call was a case of "swatting", in which a person makes up a false report to get a SWAT team to raid an address. The prank call was made with a completely fabricated story about a man that killed someone, and was holding hostages. The caller told authorities he had shot his father in the head while his parents were arguing, police said. The swatter known as Swautistic stated in the interview that he doesn't believe that he had any hand in murdering the man, he just made the call, he didn't pull the trigger.

"What gives the cops the right to open fire?" she asked.

"I see no difference between doing that and dropping a brick off of the top of the a building into a crowded street", he said.

Upon arriving at the scene, officers surrounded the front of the house, preparing to make contact with the caller inside and for the potential situation of a suspect barricaded with hostages, police said. "I heard my son scream, I got up and then I heard a shot".

Without naming Finch, police later said that a man emerged from the house and was repeatedly ordered to put his hands up. One officer, convinced that the father was reaching for a gun, fired a single round.

But the man had no weapon, and police soon realized there were no victims in the house. While all Twitter accounts involved have been suspended, this screenshot by Mattcarries is still circulating. He had claimed credit not just for Wichita - but for false bomb hoaxes at the Federal Communications Commission, a convention center in Dallas and a high school in Panama City, Florida. "I didn't believe him at first", Krebs told The Post.

"I can't even turn on my Xbox", said Harris.

"All so stupid", he wrote by way of reflection. Police don't think the man fired at officers, but the incident is still under investigation, he said. According to Lightfoot, on October 15, 2015, the case was presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office where police were asking the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office to file charges against Barriss that included two felony counts of false report of bomb to agency or business, one felony count of criminal threats and one misdemeanor count of dissuading a witness from reporting a crime was filed on Barriss.

Barriss was arrested with the help of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but we don't know what charges he will face yet.

Reporters had to broadcast the evening news while bomb-sniffing dogs traipsed through their building that day, KABC reported, and Barriss received a two-year sentence.
