Downtown standoff near 7th and May is over

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A standoff that lasted for hours Wednesday morning in downtown with a man who said he wanted to harm himself and possibly harm other people is over.

Police responded to a condo building near 7th and May before 7 a.m. after family called to report that their relative was very upset and possibly armed.

At one point, police asked everyone to clear the building and the area for "tactile reasons."

Multiple first responders were on the scene.

The 7th and Broadway intersection, which was temporarily closed, has since reopened.

Police also shut down 7th Street from Broadway to Central while on the scene, but that street has also reopened.
