The authorities are currently negotiating with an armed man, who is believe to be connected to an assault and is refusing to come out of a house. 

The KCPD said they initially went to the 700 block of N. Kansas Ave. around 3:30 p.m. to check on the welfare of a woman who was believed to be in danger. 

When officers arrived, they talked to a woman who was able to get out of the house safely. She told officers that she had been assaulted in a domestic violence situation with a man inside. 

Officers tried to talk to the man inside so they could investigate, but he told officers he was armed and refused to come out. 

Officers then surrounded the house and called for additional tactical resources and negotiators to come to the scene. 

Negotiators are currently trying to get the man to come out of the house peacefully. 

The woman who initially spoke to police has been taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. 

The area around the house is not safe, so people should avoid this area.

Police note they believe the man is the only person inside the house.
