INDEPENDENCE, Mo. — Independence Police Department officers arrested five people after a reported burglary in the 200 block of South Huttig Avenue led to a police standoff early Monday morning.

Investigators say they believe one person they arrested is someone they want to question in connection with a homicide that occurred outside of Independence, but it’s unclear which case they’re involved with.

Detectives are working on interviewing the people in custody to determine if the case will be sent to the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office.
