Standoff in Northland ends without injury after man appears to fire gun inside home


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Police spent close to three hours on the scene of standoff early Tuesday morning.

Sgt. Jake Becchina told FOX4 around 2:45 a.m. someone called 911 to report a disturbance between family members at a home along North Belmont and North Beacon Avenue. This is not far from I-435 and 291-Highway in the Northland.

The person who called 911 said an adult man was arguing with several family members and threatening to harm himself and possibly others, police said in a news release.

Police said it appears the man fired one or  more rounds from a gun inside the home.

Most of the family members who were inside the home at the time of the disturbance were able to get out of the home, police said.

“Officers surrounded the residence and attempted to make contact with the armed male to get him to safely come out,” Sgt. Becchina said in the news release. “Tactical response officers and negotiators were called to the scene with additional resources for a standoff in order to bring the situation to a safe ending.”

Police said by 6:15 a.m. tactical officers made their way into the home and took the man  into custody.

No one was physically injured during the incident.
