Barriss's bail is set at $500,000.

Tyler Barriss, 25, made his first appearance in Sedgwick County District Court following extradition from California. Barriss provided a false address to police. Instead, Andrew Finch, 28, opened his front door when he saw police lights outside and didn't know why.

The Calgary Police Service has charged a Los Angeles man in a hoax last month that caused tactical teams to descend on an apartment building for a report of a shooting and hostage taking that turned out to be bogus.

Those vehicles have been modified with sensors, cameras and radar equipment so the minivans can operate without a driver. They also won't have an owner since GM will deploy its self-driving auto for ride-hailing, not personal use.

Police responded to what they believed was a murder and hostage situation based on "information" received by Barriss, which ultimately led to the shooting death of Mr. Finch. He was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail on Thursday afternoon.

The man accused of making a false report to Wichita police that ended in an officer fatally shooting a 28-year-old man was charged with involuntary manslaughter, reporting a false alarm and interference with a law enforcement officer in his first court appearance in Wichita.

In both the Calgary and Wichita cases, police say a man called 911 purporting that he'd shot his father and that he was holding his mother and a sibling at gunpoint. There was a $1.50 wager over the game. It has gained traction in recent years among online gamers.

An officer discharged his weapon after Finch reached for his waistband, Deputy Chief Troy Livingston of the Wichita Police Department said during a news conference on Friday.

The officer who shot Finch is now on suspension, pending a thorough investigation.
