KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WIBW) - The standoff at the Truman Sports Complex parking lot has ended with no further incident.

Captain Dave Jackson of the Kansas City Police Department says his team used less-lethal ammunition and negotiations to take a man in his 30′s into custody after a standoff at Arrowhead and Kauffman stadiums.

Captain Jackson says the staff that had been sheltering in place in the stadium will shortly be released while the suspect is transported to an area psychiatric hospital.

According to the Captain, charges for the suspect have not been announced and will be discussed with the District Attorney.

Damage to the stadium is still unknown as the investigation into the incident has just begun.
