KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A man is in custody after he barricaded himself inside a residence early Monday afternoon.

The suspect was arrested around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Police said they saw who they believed to be wanted people driving a car.

The pair bailed from their car, and one person was immediately taken into custody. The other, a man, ran to a close-by residence in the 4900 block of Raytown Road, where he closed himself in and refused to surrender.

Police said they had tactical personnel and negotiators on the scene throughout the afternoon and into the night to bring the standoff to a safe end.

When the suspect finally surrendered early Tuesday morning, detectives took control of the scene to investigate.
