KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Possible explosive devices led to evacuation of some Northland homes during a police standoff with a suicidal man.

The man gave himself up at 11 a.m. Thursday. No one was injured.

Officers responded to the 5800 block of N. Colorado Avenue. An Operation 100 was initiated about 7:15 a.m. This means dozens of officers surrounded the home and it was considered a standoff.

Several homes were evacuated after concerns of possible explosive devices in the home.
