KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

People are headed back in their homes Tuesday morning after they were forced out by a standoff.

Officers were dispatched about 2 a.m. to an apartment in the 3400 block of Holmes Street in the Hyde Park area on a reported disturbance between a man and a woman.  Authorities said the man was possibly armed.

Police said it was not clear if the woman was free to leave the apartment when officers arrived.  That was when the standoff began.

As a precaution, some residents of adjacent apartments were evacuated.

The man exited the apartment about 4:30 a.m. and was transported to an area hospital to be evaluated.
