GODDARD, Kan. (KSNW) — A standoff between police and a domestic violence suspect in Goddard has come to a peaceful end.

Police blocked streets in the area of 4th and Craig for almost five hours Wednesday as they tried to talk the man out of the house.

Goddard Police Chief Lance Beagley said it started around 11:37 a.m. when officers were dispatched to a disturbance call at a home in the area.

“Officers located a DV (domestic violence) victim in the area who reported being injured by a male subject who was back inside the residence,” Beagley said. “It was reported that he was armed with a handgun.”

A Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson said the victim was treated and released from a hospital.

When officers went to the door, they said the man did not come to the door and was not responding.

Officers evacuated the nearby homes, and SWAT and Wichita Police Department negotiators were called in to help.

“At about 4:30 [p.m.], based mostly on the negotiations that occurred, the male subject did come out of the residence on his own accord, and we were able to take him into custody without incident,” Beagley said.

Goddard Public Schools sent a message to parents at 2:20 p.m. notifying them of the standoff. The message said that school principals contacted the families of students who would normally be bused to the neighborhood where the standoff is. The principals arranged alternative plans with the families.

Parents of children who walk through the neighborhood were encouraged to call the school to make other arrangements for them.
