2017 Wichita swatting

The 2017 Wichita swatting occurred on December 28, 2017, in Wichita, Kansas, United States. The incident began as an online dispute between Casey Viner and Shane Gaskill, regarding the video game Call of Duty: WWII. During the dispute, Viner threatened to have Gaskill swatted, and Gaskill responded by giving him a false address for his residence, one that was occupied by an uninvolved person, Andrew Finch. Viner then asked Tyler Barriss to make the required fraudulent call to initiate the swatting. Wichita Police responded to the address, and as Finch was exiting his house, police officer Justin Rapp fatally shot him. Barriss pled guilty to involuntary manslaughter and many other charges from unrelated incidents he was wanted for. In March 2019, he was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison. Viner was sentenced to 2 years' community service and 15 months' imprisonment for his involvement, while Gaskill was sentenced to 2 years' probation. Officer Rapp was not charged for Finch's death.

Wichita Massacre

The Wichita Massacre, also known as the Wichita Horror, was a week-long series of random brutal crimes perpetrated by brothers Reginald and Jonathan Carr in the city of Wichita, Kansas between December 7 and 14, 2000. Five people were shot and killed and a woman was severely wounded. The brothers were arrested and convicted of multiple counts of murder, kidnapping, robbery, and rape. They were both sentenced to death in October 2002. Their vicious crimes created panic in the Wichita area resulting in an increase in the sales of guns, locks, and home security systems.The case has received significant attention because the killers' death sentences have been subject to various rulings related to the use of executions in Kansas. In 2004, the Kansas Supreme Court overturned the state's death penalty law but the Kansas Attorney General appealed to the US Supreme Court which upheld the constitutionality of the death penalty in Kansas. On July 25, 2014, the Kansas Supreme Court again overturned the Carrs' death sentences on a legal technicality relating to their original trial judge not giving each brother a separate penalty proceeding. After an appeal by the state's attorney general to the US Supreme Court, it overturned the decision of the Kansas Supreme Court in January 2016, and reinstated the death sentences. The Carr brothers are incarcerated on death row at El Dorado Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison NE of Wichita.
