Mother of "swatting" victim wants cop criminally charged for shooting

The warrant, filed by Los Angeles County prosecutors, says Barriss was charged in Kansas on December 29 with the felony of making a false alarm.

On Thursday, a hoax call was placed to the 911 center in Wichita, with a man saying he'd shot his father and was holding his mother, sister and brother hostage inside a house, authorities said. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.

The incident began around 6:18 p.m.

As of writing, it is being reported that the arrest warrant or potential charges against the suspect can not be released until 'he first appears in court'.

In reality, there was no hostage situation, and the caller had no connection to the Finch family.

The caller repeatedly gave authorities his alleged home address, leading Wichita police officers to the house.

Following the standard operating procedure for police shootings in the United States, the officer who killed Finch has been placed on paid administrative leave until a whitewash investigation by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation is completed. As the man turned toward officers on the east side of the home, he lowered his hands to his waistband and suddenly pulled them up to the officers, police said. That's when an officer on the north side of the home fired one round, striking the man. However, footage from a police body camera shows that the officer was positioned across the street from the Finch home behind the cover of several vehicles.

In her letter, Finch demanded to know why the identity of the police officer who killed her son had not been made public and where police were keeping her son's body.

The Wichita Eagle reported that Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay vowed Tuesday for a "thorough review" of Finch's death. No one else was injured during the incident, police said. The tweets contain the address where Finch was shot and killed.

"We very much look at it as a bad thing that happened to a community, and even worse an innocent bystander who isn't even a gamer", said Ramsey Jamoul, CEO at Wichita eSports, which hosts semi-professional video game tournaments. In a press release, Benett said investigators are presenting his office with evidence collected in the case.

Among those questions, she said, are: What is the name of the officer who killed her son?

A spokesman for police in Glendale told NBC News that Barriss lodged about 20 threat-related calls around the country, some to news organizations and universities, during that time.

Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett said in an emailed statement to the Washington Post on Tuesday Kansas was pursuing extradition of Barriss, a process that is believed to take up to 3 months. "Barris served time after being charged by state authorities in Los Angeles for making threats and was released earlier this year", the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement, but did not directly link the sentence to the KABC bomb threat.
