OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) — Federal law enforcement agents were involved in a standoff at a Kansas apartment complex Friday evening after a suspect and an agent exchanged gunfire while authorities attempted to serve a warrant, police said.
John Lacy of the Overland Park Police Department said the U.S. Marshals Service and the FBI attempted to serve a felony warrant around 5 p.m. at the Villa Medici apartments, WDAF-TV reported.
Officers barricaded the suspect into the complex and the man fired a gun at agents before running into an apartment, Lacy said.
A U.S. Marshal returned fire but it was unclear if the suspect was hit, police said.
The man remained inside the apartment as of 7 p.m. Friday, the station reported.
Overland Park in Johnson County, Kansas, is about 12 miles (19 km) southwest of Kansas City, Missouri.
