What started as the ostensible street purchase of some tennis shoes late Saturday morning ended in the early afternoon at the end of a two-and-a-half hour standoff with police in Kansas City.
A police spokesman said the event ended peacefully about 2 p.m. in the 4700 block of East 43rd Street.
Police first received a report of a robbery in the neighborhood about 11:30 a.m. when the man who wanted to buy the shoes said the prospective seller robbed him and then shot in his direction with a handgun.
Officers canvassing the neighborhood spotted the suspect and chased him into a home. Police surrounded the house and a few hours later the suspect, a juvenile, and five other people emerged from the house.
