The man accused of making the "swatting" call that ended in Wichita police shooting and killing an unarmed man last month was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter Thursday afternoon.

Barriss is now being held in the Sedgwick County jail on a $500,000 bond.

Barriss had been held in the Los Angeles County jail since he was arrested December 28 in Los Angeles.

Police say that Barriss had called police to report a hostage situation, telling officers on 28 December 2017 that he had his family at gunpoint and had doused the house with petrol. When Wichita police responded, a man, later identified as Andy Finch, 28, emerged from the front door and was fatally shot by an officer.

Several players later took to Twitter claiming that one gamer had made the call, but rather than giving his own address, he gave what he thought was the address of the other player with whom he had been arguing.

Neither Barriss nor Finch was involved in the disputed game, according to the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

The Government will bring England into line with other devolved nations in extending the 5p carrier bag charge to all retailers. Brexit will not lead to a lowering of environmental standards in the UK, Prime Minister Theresa May has promised.

This charge means "a killing was unintentional which resulted from recklessness or during another unlawful act".

Police have said they believed Finch was armed when he moved his hands toward his waistband and then motioned toward officers.

"Someone tried to SWAT me and got an innocent man killed, the person said on Twitter according to Rolling Stone".

Eyewitness News has learned that Tyler Barriss is coming to Kansas. The player who was the "target" of the offended player had provided the latter with a false address that led the police to Finch's home. The suspect gave police Finch's address, which was reportedly a fake address provided to him by a Call of Duty player upset over a small wager match.

According to jail records in Los Angeles, Barriss was released to Kansas authorities at 8:53 a.m.
