KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas City, Kan., standoff between police and a suspect in an aggravated robbery has ended peacefully after the suspect surrendered.

The incident Friday prompted the lockdown of a nearby Catholic school as a precaution. It ended around 4 p.m. when the man gave himself up.

Police say they received a report of a burglary around 11 a.m. and later chased a suspect into a home, sparking the standoff. The nearby Resurrection Catholic School was locked down as a precaution.

A statement on the school's website said teachers were made aware of the situation but no information was immediately given to the students.

Police helped direct parents to a location where they could pick up their children Friday afternoon, a few hours before the standoff ended.
