Blue Springs MO Domestic Standoff Ends in Suspect Being Shot and Killed by Police

Blue Springs police were called to  a domestic disturbance around 10:20 p.m. Sunday night and after an about 2 hour standoff- killed the male suspect in that disturbance.

The disturbance in the 400 block of Southwest 4th Street reportedly involved a husband and wife at a home in that block and when police arrived- the husband barricaded himself in the house and refused to come out.

Police then called a tactical operation (known as an "Operation-100" in KC-MO) and repeatedly urged the man to come out.

The man did come out just before midnight- but he was reportedly armed with a couple of handguns that he refused to drop after repeated requests by officers.

Police attempted to disarm the man by shooting beanbag-like devices at him- when that failed- police opened fire with their guns.

The man went down- was transported by a Central Jackson County (CJC) Fire Protection District EMS unit to Centerpoint Med Center where he died of the unknown-number of gunshot wounds about 1:30 a.m. Monday morning.

A police investigation was being completed- while "the officers involved were put on paid administrative leave" a police official told CSW Monday morning.
