KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Around 12:45 p.m., officers were called to the 3700 block of Mersington in regard to a disturbance.
This is located a few blocks southwest of the KC VA Medical Center and just west of Seven Oaks Park.
When officers arrived, they were contacted by an adult male victim who said he invited his girlfriend, an adult female, to come over and hang out.
He then said the adult female was acting erratic, so he asked her to leave. She refused, then threatened the victim by pointing a gun at him.
The male left the residence, leaving the woman as the only individual in the home.
Officers attempted to make contact with the woman for further investigation, but after numerous unsuccessful attempts, officers deescalated and surrounded the apartment to prevent escape.
They then called for an Operation 100/Police Standoff to bring additional resources and trained negotiators to help bring a peaceful resolution.
The woman eventually surrendered to officers around 3:30 p.m. She was then taken into custody.
