OSAWATOMIE, Kan. (AP) _ An eastern Kansas man is in custody
after a standoff with police that included shots fired at
responding officers.
The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/xzTe2s) reports Osawatomie
police were told by family members around 9:30 p.m. Saturday that a
31-year-old was intoxicated, heavily armed and possibly suicidal
inside his home.
Police say the man, who has not been identified, fired several
shots inside the home before police arrived, then shot at officers
who responded.
Police spokesman Robert Butters says the man came outside
several times and fired additional rounds.
Miami County tactical officers were evacuating people in the
neighborhood when the man surrendered after speaking with a police
negotiator.
He was being held in jail pending further investigation.
