Armed man barricades himself inside Kansas City home

KANSAS CITY, Mo.– Officers responded to reports of an armed man in the 600 block of Forest Wednesday at about 3:00 p.m. When they arrived, officers tried to talk to the man, but he then barricaded himself inside the home.

Police eventually escorted one woman out of the residence to safety.

The standoff ended at about 8 p.m. without incident, and while police say they know who was inside, no one was taken into custody and the investigation is ongoing.
