"Suspect in standoff at home in Independence taken into custody"

I see the ace reporters at Fox 4 are on the case. No mention of where the incident took place, what happened, whether the suspect was make or female, why he pulled the gun or any facts related to the incident. In short KC media delivers another time wasting nothing burger from morons that forgot why they were assigned the story to cover.
