KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Kansas City police were in a standoff at 89th and Wornall. 

At around 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, police were called to an area about a person who may be armed. 

After a disturbance at home, police say he broke a window in the house, ran from them into the Dollar Tree and locked himself in a room there, refusing to come out.

Around 8:15 p.m., police led the man out the front door. He was transported to an area hospital for medical treatment, as he cut himself after breaking a window. 

He was not injured in the process of getting him out of the building, according to police. 

Employees inside the business were evacuated early on.
