Suspect arrested after standoff in Park City

PARK CITY, Kansas – After over three and a half hours the standoff situation in Park City came to an end. The armed man was arrested by police.

Since the arrest, Park City Police Department received a tip that there may be explosives in the home. However the claim has been proven false after further investigation.

“We were hoping from the beginning that nobody would be hurt, that’s exactly what happened, this is the best outcome for everyone,” said Park City Police Chief, Phil Bostian.

The location of the standoff is was at a home in the 6300 block of North Ulysses.

Roads near the home have been blocked off by police, and witnesses reported three shots were fired from a high-powered rifle, believed to be an AR-15.

Police evacuated homes in the area of the standoff when they arrived on the scene early this afternoon. When police received the tip about explosives possibly in the home, they continued to keep people out of their homes and away from the location.

Since proving that claim false, the all-clear has been given and residents have been allowed to return to their homes.
