Suicidal Man Surrenders to Police After Brief Stand Off

At about 2:40 this afternoon, May 6, 2012, a woman called the Raytown Police to the 10300 block of East 63 Street. The woman had found her husband, a 48 year old man, holding a gun to his own head. The man’s wife exited their apartment when the police arrived. The police were unable to initially contact the man and the Raytown tactical and negotiator teams were called to the scene. Residents were evacuated from the surrounding, immediate, area of the apartment.

Soon after arriving, Raytown negotiators were able to establish contact with the man. At about 4:20 pm, the man surrendered to police and he was taken into custody without incident. The man was taken to an area hospital for evaluation.
