Man Arraigned After False Call to 911 Leaves One Man Dead


WICHITA, Ks. — The man charged in a deadly swatting incident in Wichita, Kansas back in December was arraigned in court Friday, June 29.

A trial date for Tyler Barriss is now set for Oct. 1.

He is one of three people accused of making a false call to 911 that resulted in the death of 28-year-old Andrew Finch.

Barriss is charged with 12 counts, including making false information, interstate threats and conspiracy.

Police say the call that led officers to Finch’s home was allegedly a prank after an online argument over a video game.

Barriss pleaded not guilty.
