A ‘Call of Duty’ bet led to the fatal police shooting of an unarmed Kansas man.
26-year-old California man Tyler Barris was sentenced to 20 years in prison after 28-year-old father Andrew Finch was fatally shot by police.
The shooting occurred after gamers Casey Viner and Shane Gaskill got into a heated beef over a $1.50 bet on a ‘Call of Duty’ match.
Viner asked Barris to dial 911 to report a kidnapping at Gaskill’s home address. However, Barris accidentally gave Wichita Police an incorrect address for Gaskill’s home.
Police arrived at the home of Andrew Finch, who lived at the address that Barris provided. A cop then fatally shot the unarmed Finch after believing Finch was reaching for a gun.
The officer involved in the shooting has not been charged for any misconduct.
Barris was charged with 51 federal crimes relating to fake calls and threats.
