Kansas state law says that involuntary manslaughter is "a killing that was unintentional which resulted from recklessness or during another unlawful act". He could end up with a felony conviction of 36 months in jail & a $300k fine.

The woman told police she believed she was the victim of a swatting call - when someone makes a phoney emergency call aimed at sending tactical officers to a certain location.

The false call made by Barriss is believed to have been the result of an online dispute between two Call of Duty players. For that reason, the investigation remains ongoing and the charges against Barriss could be modified.

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. The account has been suspended. Finch was not armed. She also said he wasn't a part of the gaming community. "He has better things to do with his time".

Siegenthaler said a man called 911 on December 22 claiming he had shot his father and was holding his mom and younger brother hostage.

Barriss will appear in court on Friday to be read his charges.
