Police arrest California man after fatal Kansas police shooting

Barriss was taken into custody by LAPD on Friday afternoon, according to NBC News.

When police arrived at the address, Andrew Finch answered the door and was shot by a police man.

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

'We were given some misinformation on the (original) call, ' he said. He was charged with two felony counts of a false report of a bomb to an agency of business and one felony count of criminal threats. The officer who fired the deadly shot has been placed on administrative paid leave.

Police are now investigating the shooting as a case of swatting. "The original call, we were told someone had an argument with their mother and dad was accidentally shot".

'We got a call that someone was deceased in the residence and that proved not to be true. He then lists the address where the victim, Finch, was present. It isn't believed that the unnamed man shot back at police. According to KWCH, Livingston said the department's thoughts and prayers are with Finch's family and with the WPD officer who fatally shot him.

"As you can imagine, this investigation is dynamic and complex and there's a lot of information to go through", Livingston said.

"The police said, 'Come out with your hands up, ' " Lisa Finch told the Eagle. She also said her granddaughter was forced to step over her dying uncle and that no guns were found in the home. Authorities in Wichita said someone made a prank call to 911 with a made-up story about a shooting and kidnapping.

Speculation surrounding the caller's motivation has swirled as numerous gamers told The Wichita Eaglethat Thursday's episode was fallout from a dispute over the game Call of Duty. Swatting has been used as a tactic to harass and intimidate people across the country and is typically done with digital tools that disguise the caller's location. The person behind the account has claimed credit for a number of swatting hoaxes and other threats including one that led to the evacuation of the Dallas Convention Center earlier this month, a bomb threat at a Florida high school in November and the threat that caused the FCC to pause its net neutrality vote a couple of weeks ago.

Police say there wasn't, but amid the confusion, an officer shot and killed a 28-year-old man.

Rep. Katherine Clark, a Massachusetts Democrat, introduced an anti-swatting bill in 2015 - then was herself the victim of swatting. "Our officers came here preparing for a hostage situation". The official was not authorised to discuss the investigation publicly, however.

"There were several commands given" by police, Livingston said.

Finch was a father of two children - a two-year-old and a seven-year-old - and his family said he didn't play video games.

Andrew Finch's aunt Lorrie Hernandez-Caballero told the Eagle she was shocked that a person would make such a prank call.

"How does it feel to be a murderer?" "I can't believe people do this on goal".
