  • A 30-year-old Wichita man is in jail after barricading himself inside a Hutchinson home for more than six hours.
    The man surrendered peacefully Wednesday evening after the standoff and is jailed in Reno County awaiting charges.
    Authorities say the standoff began when a state parole officer saw the man in a car that had been stolen in Wichita. The suspect had violated his parole on Sedgwick County charges including aggravated assault and endangering a child.
    After a brief chase, the man ran inside a Hutchinson home. Residents inside the home got out of the house and the suspect holed up in the basement.
    A Hutchinson school near the scene of the standoff was placed on lockdown but students were released at the normal time.
