Police arrest California man after fatal Kansas police shooting

Police shoot man after prank call following 'dispute between gamers'

The Wichita Police Department Friday confirmed Friday a prank call led to the deadly officer-involved shooting of a 28-year-old man, CBS affiliate KWCH reports.

Barriss was arrested Friday in South Los Angeles on suspicion of making the prank call to police in Kansas.

According to the LA Times, Barris was arrested in 2015 for making false bomb threats to ABC7 in Glendale.

On the call, Livingston says police prepared for a hostage situation and an officer shot the 28-year-old when he came to the door.

Swatting is reporting a fake crime to police with the intent of getting police SWAT teams to respond to the target home.

Wichita Deputy Police Chief Troy Livingston said an officer responded to a report that a father had been shot in the head and that a shooter was holding his mother, brother and sister hostage, The Wichita Eagle reported.

Despite a nine-year layoff, Gruden has been putting together a staff behind the scenes and is serious about making a return. The Bucs are 4-11 heading into Sunday's finale after finishing 9-7 and barely missing the playoffs in Koetter's debut year.

Swatting has gained traction across the country with online gamers. When Finch went to the door police told him to put his hands up and move slowly.

The caller, speaking with relative calm, also said he poured gasoline inside the home "and I might just set it on fire".

UMG Gaming, which runs tournaments of online video games including Call of Duty, also told the AP that the company "is doing everything we can to assist the authorities". Those who try to cause the swatting incident will use caller ID spoofing or other techniques to disguise their number as being local.

"The person who made the phone call took my nephew. two kids' father", Finch's aunt, Lorrie Hernandez-Caballero, told the paper.

Officers soon flanked the house on three sides and readied themselves for a confrontation, Livingston said in his press conference.

"The irresponsible actions of the prankster put people and lives at risk", he said. "The incident is a nightmare for everyone involved".

A bomb explodes in a Coptic Christian church in Alexandria as worshippers depart a midnight mass, killing more than 20 people. At least nine people are dead after two gunmen attacked the Mari Mina Church in Egypt's capital on Friday, authorities said.

"I heard my son scream, I got up and then I heard a shot", Lisa Finch said in the interview with the newspaper.

Officer Paul Cruz, a spokesman for the Wichita police, said the two city police departments are working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation on the case, but provided no further details including on possible charges or extradition.

Police entered the house and found no one deceased, injured and no hostages inside, he said.

"What gives the cops the right to open fire?" she asked. Police didn't find any weapons on him and officers learned he did not make the 911 call, according to Livingston.

"We woke this morning to terrible news about an innocent man losing his life", UMG spokeswoman Shannon Gerritzen said in an email to The Associated Press. Had the false police call not been made, we would not have been there. "That cop murdered my son over a false report".
