KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City police said the suspect from an overnight standoff in the 1700 block of East 28th Street was not located inside the residence when officers entered Friday morning.

Officers were called to the area just before midnight on Thursday to investigate a reported disturbance involving a weapon.

KCPD said an adult woman reported that an adult man was armed with a firearm and threatening her and the kids inside a residence.

The first responding officers were able to evacuate the woman and three children from the home, but the suspect refused to come out.

KCPD called for an Operation 100 to bring additional tactical resources and negotiators to the scene.

Shortly after 7 a.m., KCPD said officers made entry into the residence, but the suspect was no longer inside and that the investigation remains ongoing.
