Man kills himself following standoff with police

A man took his own life early Sunday morning in Olathe after barricading himself in his house following a domestic disturbance, Olathe police said.

At 12:37 a.m., officers responded to an armed disturbance in the 16200 block of W. 132nd Terrace. Police learned that an armed man remained in the house after an argument with his domestic partner.

Officers talked to the man by telephone and urged him to come out of the house. The man refused. About 7:45 a.m., officers entered the residence and found the man dead, apparently from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Police are investigating.

Anyone with information regarding this shooting is asked to call the Olathe Police Department at (913) 971-7455.
