Barriss is also facing charges regarding giving false alarm and falsely reporting a felony.

Prosecutors allege he made a call from Los Angeles on December 28 with a fake story about a shooting and kidnapping at a home in Wichita; responding police officers fatally shot a man at the home. His bond is set at $500,000.

Twenty-five-year-old Tyler Barriss made his first court appearance in Kansas Friday following extradition from California. As reported by Glixel, Barriss could face a maximum fine of $300,000 and up to 36 months in prison under the manslaughter charge. Barriss has also been accused of making a false alarm, a felony.

Law enforcement sources told The Times last week that the dispute that led to the hoax call stemmed from an argument over an online matchup in "Call of Duty: World War II", a recently released first-person shooting game.

Late past year, Kansas resident Andrew Finch was killed by Wichita police when a frivolous 911 call was made stating that there was a hostage situation at the address of Finch's mother.

He had missed a wide open Calvin Ridley in the end zone on the Tide's first drive, which eventually led to a missed field goal . The Georgia Bulldogs put up a good fight, but in the end, it was Alabama's defense that really made the difference.

Reports say Barriss was called by someone after a feud between two Call of Duty players broke out over a virtual "friendly kill" during a game earlier that day. Finch appears to have no connection to the game or the dispute arising from it.

Barriss has also been linked to swatting incidents in IL and New Hampshire, according to court records.

Barriss, 25, is accused of claiming to the dispatcher that he had shot his father in the head and was holding the rest of his family hostage.
