KCKPD in standoff with possible homicide suspect on Leavenworth Road; UPDATE: It's over


The Kansas City, Kan., Police Department have surrounded a home on 61st and Leavenworth Road - a location police believe contains a person wanted in connection to a recent double homicide.

Police responded to a tip early Friday and remain on the scene right now.

Two individuals - Laura Mitchie and Monty Taylor - were killed last Saturday in a shooting that wounded two other people in the area. The shooting took place on the 1300 Block of Roswell Avenue.

Officers have blocked off the road on 61st Street, so those traveling in the area should expect some delays.

More information when available.


UPDATE 3:06 p.m. - Via KMBC Channel 9 news, the stand-off ended peacefully at 1:30 p.m.
