One dead after west Wichita shooting

A Kansas man fatally shot by police Thursday was possibly the victim of "swatting", a prank where someone calls emergency services about a false ongoing crime so that a large police presence goes to a particular house. She said the family was "saddened" but declined to comment further.

Such a prank is now bring blamed for the death of a 28-year-old man from Wichita.

A 28-year-old man was fatally shot by an officer Thursday.

Update: Wichita police say one man is dead after a Wichita Police Department officer shot him on a call Thursday evening at a home near McCormick and Seneca in southwest Wichita.

'This call was little peculiar for us, ' Livingston said. The gamer who called in the phony police report claims he too is innocent because he didn't pull the trigger and isn't on the SWAT team. This type of prank has gained some mainstream appeal in recent years online and it was only a matter of time until someone was going to get killed. She said her granddaughter was forced to step over her dying uncle and that no guns were found in the home. Brian Krebs had a brief conversation with the person who claimed responsibility for the false report to police, and though he admits that he was the one who called police and regrets his actions, he says he won't turn himself in.

Andrew Finch's family has established a GoFundMe page to help pay for the man's funeral.

"We were told that someone had an argument with their mother and dad was accidentally shot and that now that person was holding brother, sister and mother hostage", Wichita Police Deputy Chief Troy Livingston said. No one else was wounded in the home. And it isn't known what cause the officer to shoot him on sight.

Police are investigating whether it was a "swatting" incident or prank. They also said, "Bomb threats are more fun and cooler than swats in my opinion and I should have just stuck to that".

Officers arrived at the 1000 block of McCormick, where they were fully prepared for the hostage situation.

The Wichita Eagle details a disturbing news story of an officer who shot a man because of a fake homicide and hostage situation that was reported to Wichita authorities. Livingston said that when officers got inside the house, they didn't find anyone with gunshot wounds.

The man who answered the door later died at the hospital, and now police have launched an investigation concerning whether or not the call was an act of swatting and why the officer fired his weapon prematurely.
