WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The Latest on the preliminary hearing for a California man accused of making a hoax call that led to police shooting of unarmed man in Kansas. (all times local):

A detective says a California man confessed after his arrest to making a hoax call that led to police fatally shooting an unarmed man in Kansas.

Los Angeles Detective Edward Dorroh testified Tuesday in a preliminary hearing for 25-year-old Tyler Barriss in Wichita.

Barriss is accused of calling police from Los Angeles on Dec. 28 to report a shooting and kidnapping at a home in Wichita, Kansas. A police officer fatally shot 28-year-old Andrew Finch after he opened his door.

Dorroh told the court he asked Barris whether he knew the risks of making such calls. Barriss replied that he couldn’t deny he knew the risk. Barriss told Dorroh that the “worst outcome happened. It is just so unfortunate.”

A California man accused of making a hoax call that led to police shooting an unarmed man in Kansas is returning to court, where a judge is set to decide if there is enough evidence to put him on trial for involuntary manslaughter.

Twenty-five-year-old Tyler Barriss is accused of calling police from Los Angeles on Dec. 28 to report a shooting and kidnapping at a Wichita home. A police officer fatally shot 28-year-old Andrew Finch after he opened his door.

Barriss’ preliminary hearing is Tuesday before Judge Bruce Brown in Wichita.

Barriss also faces charges of giving a false alarm and interference with a law enforcement officer.

The shooting drew attention to “swatting,” a practice in which a person makes a false report to get emergency responders to descend on an address.
