Tyler Bariss, who made ‘swatting’ call that led to death, to spend 20 years in prison – CNN

“Today’s sentencing is only the first step in obtaining justice for the Finch family,” said family attorney Andrew Stroth. “The leadership of Wichita and the (police department) are also responsible for the tragic, unjustified and unconstitutional death of Andy Finch. The family will continue to pursue justice and accountability with the federal lawsuit pending against the city of Wichita and (the officers).”

….Authorities said one of them enlisted Barriss to “swat” the other co-defendant because of an argument that began while they were online playing a video game. Barriss was given an address — where the second co-defendant once lived but was then Finch’s residence.

He made 911 calls from Los Angeles by acquiring a local Wichita number through a cell phone app, authorities say.
