Standoff in Osage County Ends

OVERBROOK, Kan. (AP) Two people are in custody after a standoff that lasted nearly seven hours in Osage County.

Authorities say the standoff began about 1 p.m. Tuesday when Shawnee County officers tried to serve a warrant at an apartment in Overbrook. The man refused to come out.

Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn says another person inside the apartment tried to flee shortly after the standoff began but was arrested.

The wanted man ignored several attempts to communicate with him. About 8 p.m., authorities forced their way into his apartment and arrested him without incident.

No one was injured during the standoff.

Authorities did not release the man’s name or say what why a warrant had been issued for him.
