Swatting Suspect Set for First Appearance in Sedgwick Co. District Court

Swatting Suspect Set for First Appearance in Sedgwick Co. District Court

A California man accused of making a hoax emergency call that led to the fatal police shooting of an unarmed man has been extradited to Kansas. He was also charged with giving false alarm and interference with a law enforcement officer. Marc Bennett. He is being held in lieu of $500,000, and is represented by a public defender.

Barriss made his first court appearance Friday, where he was officially charged with involuntary manslaughter.

If convicted of involuntary manslaughter, Barriss could face up to 11 years and three months in prison, depending on his criminal history, Bennett said.

Gaming news site Dexerto reported earlier that the dispute between Barriss and the other Call of Duty player occurred after a $1 or $2 online wager match on UMG, a popular video game matchmaking site.

Barriss waived extradition to Kansas last week. It has gained traction in recent years among online gamers. When the SWAT team arrived and a man, Andrew Finch, answered the door, an officer shot him. Wichita police say he was given commands to keep his hands raised, but he reached toward his waistline multiple times. The Los Angeles Police Department was investigating Barriss on allegations that he made similar calls in late 2017, and had planned a meeting with federal prosecutors before arresting the 25-year-old in connection with the Kansas incident.

There is no update regarding punishment for the Call of Duty player that apparently provided Finch's address as his own. The woman involved in the Calgary incident reportedly told police that Barriss targeted her because of her online presence, according to Rolling Stone.

On the evening of December 22, officers were deployed to an apartment building in the community of Bankview after someone called 911 claiming that they had shot their father and taken members of their family hostage.
