NAT025 - (US-Police-Shooting-Wichita) (NOTE LENGTH) (NOT FOR ONLINE USE) WICHITA, Kan. x-03s. Police in Los Angeles have arrested a man they say placed the so-called swatting call that led to the fatal police shooting of an unarmed man in Wichita, Kansas. Twenty-five-year-old Tyler Barris is being held in connection with the death of Andrew Finch. Finch was shot in the door of his home by officers responding to a prankster's report of a shooting and hostage situation in the home. Wichita police say they thought Finch was possibly reaching for a gun when a responding officer opened fire. Finch's mother, Lisa Finch, was in the home at the time and says police should have seen there was no hostage situation. ("..no warning whatsoever.") (SOURCE:ABC)
