GUNFIRE AT ARROWHEAD!!! KANSAS CITY POLICE LOCK DOWN TRUMAN SPORTS COMPLEX AMID STANDOFF!!!
This week Kansas City's football stadium was the focal point of social justice protest and right-wing fan push back. Currently, a gunman and police are locked in a confrontation and hope for a peaceful solution.
Police alert this afternoon:
"Avoid the parking lots at the Truman Sports complex; police and security have entrances locked down and the complex is CLOSED. Police investigating an armed person in the parking lot. THERE ARE NO EVENTS CURRENTLY HAPPENING AT EITHER STADIUM"
The narrative so far . . .
"Officers were called to the stadium around 11:30 a.m. Saturday morning to investigate a man who was armed with a gun. When they arrived they were told the man had taken shots at employees. After making sure that no one was injured they made contact with the suspect and they currently have him contained in the southeast parking lot of the complex.
"Negotiators are at the scene and are talking with him and trying to bring this incident to a peaceful conclusion."
