Fatal Swatting Case Leads to Involuntary Manslaughter Charge

The man accused of making a fake emergency call to police that led to the shooting death of a Kansas man by a Wichita SWAT unit was charge Friday with involuntary manslaughter, according to the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office.

Tyler Raj Barriss, 25, was also charged with giving false alarm and interference with law-enforcement officers. Barriss arrived at the Sedgwick County Jail in Kansas on Thursday night after being extradited from California. His bond is set at $500,000. Under Kansas state law, involuntary manslaughter is a killing that was unintentional which resulted from recklessness or during another unlawful act. The maximum sentence for the felony ranges from 31 to 136 months depending on a number of factors including any prior criminal record.

Barriss appeared in court Friday afternoon where he was officially read his charges. That hearing was a relatively perfunctory matter where Barriss was asked a series of routine questions and the process for assigning him a lawyer and the next court date was set. Barriss will have to enter a plea at arraignment which is likely to take place later in January.

Barriss also faces charges in connection with another Swatting incident that occurred in Canada, according to The Globe and Mail. Calgary police say they charged Barriss of Los Angeles with mischief and fraud charges following a "swatting" incident on December 22nd. Calgary 911 said it received a phone call that day from a man who claimed he shot his father and was holding his mother and younger brother hostage. He gave them an address in Calgary's Bankview neighborhood belonging to an unnamed woman, who told police she was targeted because of her online persona. No one was hurt in the Calgary case.

this loser needs to get the maximum sentence allowed. there's no doubt he's done this plenty of times. a death was inevitable, it was only a matter of time.
