Hoax 911 Call Made by Suspect of Fatal Kansas Swatting Has Been Released

Story :

The audio for the hoax 911 call which allegedly resulted in the death of 28 year old man in Kansas has been released by Wichita Police.

On Thursday 28th December 28 year old Adam Finch was shot by a police officer outside his home after police showed up in numbers at his address. It is reported that the police were only at the address due to a hoax call they had received claiming there was a homicide and hostage situation underway.

Finch, who’s address had been used in the hoax phone call, was not the intended target of the ‘swatting’, but rather his address had been given falsely by an individual in an online feud between two competitive Call of Duty players who had both threatened to ‘swat’ each other.

One of the players provided an address to the other to test whether they’d actually put a hoax call in, and he passed those details onto a known swatter. A call was then made to the Wichita police department, claiming there was a hostage and homicide situation at the address given, but it turned out to be the home of Andrew Finch, rather than the player.

it's second degree murder in my book. i hope they nail everyone involved.
