KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Police were in a standoff for over six hours Wednesday with an individual sought for a felony aggravated assault warrant. 

Investigators say the suspect taken into custody is the man believed to be responsible for shooting near the businesses at 74th Street and Wornall Road and the QuikTrip at 102nd Street and Wornall Road.  

"A person in our community firing shots in and around businesses occupied patrons is unacceptable and we (KCPD) take these acts very seriously.  Detectives immediately began investigating the incidents and quickly developed a suspect.  As a result, the suspect was located and taken into custody.  Charges will be presented to the prosecutor this morning, if they haven’t already," Kansas City Police Department spokeswoman Capt. Stacey Graves said.

The standoff began about 7:30 p.m. in the 3400 block of Southern Hills Drive. 

Police saw the man in the area and fled into his home after officers approached him.

Roads were closed and people living in the area were forced to evacuate their homes as officers negotiated with the man.

Police negotiators worked into the early morning hours Thursday before the man finally surrendered and was arrested at 2:04 a.m.

All roads are now back open and residents have been allowed to return home.
