The Call Of Duty "swatting" prankster has received a charge of manslaughter after his fake hostage situation resulted in the death of an innocent man.
From Dailymail.co.uk: A California man who was accused of faking a hostage situation for a 'swatting' prank last month that resulted in an innocent 28-year-old Kansas man being shot dead has been charged with involuntary manslaughter.
Tyler Barriss made his first court appearance Friday in Kansas via a video from jail after he was extradited from Los Angeles.
In addition to manslaughter, the 25-year-old gamer was charged with making a false alarm and interference with a law enforcement officer.
His bond was set at $500,000.
Barriss called Wichita police on December 28 claiming that he had shot his father in the head and was holding his mother and brother at gunpoint.
He also claimed that he had poured gasoline inside the home and 'might just set it on fire'.
He allegedly gave a 911 dispatcher the address of a home on West McCormick Street in Wichita, Kansas. The house belonged to Andrew Finch, a 28-year-old father-of-two.
