A suspect has been taken into custody following a long standoff in the parking lot at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. The suspect, who has not been identified, reportedly has been dealing with a mental health crisis, according to reports.
The initial calls said that the suspect was shooting at Arrowhead Stadium. However, through their investigation, the authorities found out that the gunman, who was shooting from a parking lot at the stadium, was actually shooting at employees.
“At about 6:30 pm (local time), tactical officers developed a plan to use less lethal devices to secure the armed individual,” Kansas City Police Department said in a statement on Twitter. “The plan was successful and he was taken into custody without further incident. He was not injured. Two hand guns and a knife were recovered from the suspect.
“He is under arrest on investigation of criminal charges associated with the initial shots fired at this time. Normal stadium access and operations will resume this evening.”
The authorities were dispatched to Arrowhead Stadium around 11:30 am local time. The sports complex was shut down due to the standoff.
The Pittsburgh Pirates and the Kansas City Royals eventually started. The Pirates, due to the standoff, were delayed at their team hotel in Kansas City.
The Pirates did not make it to Kauffman Stadium until approx. 6 pm local time.
