The suspect in a 10-hour standoff on the Kickapoo Reservation has been booked on a single count of kidnapping, says the Brown Co. Sheriff's Office.

Anthony Walker could face more charges as well, authorities added. His bond was set at $500,000.

Nobody was hurt in the standoff, which started around 9 p.m. Tuesday after an officer heard gunfire after responding to a domestic disturbance call at a home in the 1200 block of Fern Road, in Horton, Kickapoo Tribal Police Chief Nathan Gray explained.

Multiple other agencies were called in and surrounded the home as shots continued to ring out, Gray continued.

The standoff ended around 7 a.m. the next morning. Gray said a Kansas Highway Patrol team went into the home to take Walker into custody without incident.

The woman who was in the home when the standoff started had escaped before the standoff ended. Gray confirmed that shots were fired at officers during the standoff, but nobody was hit.

In addition to the Brown Co. Sheriff's Office and Kansas Highway Patrol, the Horton Police Department, Kickapoo Tribal Police, Sac and Fox Tribal Police, Brown Co. Sheriff, Nemaha Co. Sheriff, and Topeka Police Department were all taken to the scene.
