A Kansas police officer was in critical condition and a 56-year-old high school basketball coach was also hospitalized with gunshot wounds Friday after a dispute broke out in a small city northwest of Wichita. A 40-year-old suspect was taken into custody more than three hours after the shooting after he barricaded himself in a nearby home, according to reports. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation identified the suspect as Adam Hrabik, reports said.
Wichita police believe the call was a case of'swatting,' in which a false report is made to get a SWAT team to descend on an address. A suspected "swatter" from California whose fake emergency call allegedly led to a Kansas man's death last year faces 46 new federal charges for fake reports of bomb threats, shootings and other acts of violence, authorities said. The charges were filed against Tyler Barriss, 25, of Los Angeles, on Wednesday in the Central District of California. Prosecutors allege Barris called in several false threats to law enforcement agencies between 2014 and 2017 from Los Angeles, the Wichita Eagle reported. Barriss plans to plead guilty to the charges, according to a signed court document, the paper reported.
