Mother of swatting victim wants more arrests made

USA Schießerei in Wichita

Thursday night, authorities responded to a call that indicated there was a possible homicide and hostage situation at the victim's-identified as Andrew Finch-home in Wichita (via The Wichita Eagle 1, 2).

"They find somebody that they don't necessarily like that's live streaming, and they have them swatted", he said.

Police are now investigating the shooting as a case of swatting.

Mr Finch, 28, was killed during a standoff with police minutes after they received the hoax call, Wichita Deputy Police Chief Troy Livingston said during a news conference.

Other gamers have called for "swatting" to be stopped. Swautistic was not one of the gamers involved. The practice is called "swatting" where someone calls a false report to get a SWAT team to someone else's home.

Professional Call of Duty players on Twitter have attempted to explain the situation themselves (via CharlieINTEL).

Police entered the house and found no one dead or injured and no hostages inside, Mr Livingston said.

"That kids house that I swatted is on the news", the same account tweeted. I'm exhausted of this shit, he need to be thrown in jail.

Roy Moore says he passed polygraph
The number has been raised to 118 voter fraud complaints, with 85 so far having been adjudicated, Merrill said. A spokesman for Jones earlier called Moore's action a "desperate attempt.to subvert the will of the people".

Swatting happened when someone makes a call to a police department with a false story of an ongoing crime - often with killing or hostages involved - in an attempt to draw a large number of police officers to a particular address.

ZooMaa went on to share screenshots of apparent threats that Swautistic had sent him on December 29.

The family members were handcuffed and taken in police cruisers to be interviewed by officers at a station, the Eagle reported.

Lisa Finch, Finch's mother, said, "What gives the cops the right to open fire?". Police have said officers feared Finch had drawn a weapon. Soon, Finch came to the door to see what was going on, the newspaper reported. When Finch came to his front door, he was shot by a cop. It isn't believed that the unnamed man shot back at police. Apparently it "went to a substation first, then it was relayed to dispatch, then dispatch gave it to us", he explained, adding: "We have a lot of information to go through". Unfortunately, the "information [they] were working off of" may have been based on a prank gone wrong.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help pay for the expenses of Finch's funeral. The police and FBI were investigating whether the hoax call stemmed from an argument over an online game. They also said, "Bomb threats are more fun and cooler than swats in my opinion and I should have just stuck to that". The false address was Finch's address.

The person who was supposed to be the target of the prank tweeted: 'Someone tried to swat me and got an innocent man killed'.

A law enforcement official who earlier confirmed Mr Barriss' arrest said the shooting stemmed from a dispute over the "Call of Duty" video game. The loser of that game got "salty", according to the account. Said one gamer via email.

The term swatting has been used by the Federal Bureau of Investigation since 2008. An FBI supervisor in Kansas City, Missouri, which covers all of Kansas, said the agency joined in the investigation at the request of local police.
