Barriss has also been charged with reporting a false alarm, and interference with a law enforcement officer.

According to Kansas law, involuntary manslaughter is described as the killing of a human being as a result of reckless behavior or in the commission of an unlawful act. After this incident, an arrest was later made, and now the suspect has officially been charged with involuntary manslaughter for having his hand in the events that led to a person's death. Finch appears to have no connection to the game or the dispute arising from it. Calgary police are charging Barriss with mischief and fraud.

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. Barris has a history of making such hoax calls, which are sometimes called "swatting". Barriss was allegedly targeting the home of a young woman he met online, authorities in Calgary said.

Police report that Barriss made the initial emergency call, stating that he had killed his father and was holding the rest of his family hostage.
