Police Shoot and Kill Man After Apparent ‘Swatting’ Prank
A Wichita, Kansas, man is dead after what police are investigating as a possible “swatting” incident. After two gamers had a falling out over a Call of Duty game Thursday night, one threatened to make a false police report to police so armed officers would respond. The other gamer reportedly taunted him, and listed another person’s Wichita address as own. The first gamer allegedly called police and when a SWAT team arrived at the home, an officer shot and killed a 28-year-old man who came to the door. Police are investigating the source of the prank call.
