Wichita Police involved in stand-off in Riverside 

August 27, 2019 - 10:26 pm

Wichita police are involved in a stand-off with an armed man in the riverside neighborhood.

The S.W.A.T. Team was called to the area of 11th and Amidon at around 5:00 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.  This after officers responded and left the residence in question earlier in the day.

That call at around 11:00 o'clock involved a man who was having a mental health crisis.  Police say the man had a handgun at the time with two other people in the home.  But it was determined that the man was not a threat, before leaving.

Police Officer Charlie Davidson says officers were called back later in the day when the man was believed to have made threats to the property.

S.W.A.T. negotiators have been in contact with the man.  Officer Davidson said police will provide an update on the situation Wednesday morning.
