Man in custody after 8.5-hour standoff

Posted: Updated:

An eight and a half-hour standoff at a home in Independence ended early Saturday morning.

The call first went out as a domestic disturbance about 6 p.m. Friday at a home near East 29th Terrace and Overton Avenue.

A mother and two children immediately got out of the home, but it took tear gas to get the man out.

The man is now in custody and no one was hurt.
