Kenwood standoff situation ends

7 p.m. UPDATE:

The 22-hour standoff ended shortly before 7 p.m. Wednesday when the unidentified man staggered out of a trailer and collapsed. He was declared dead by a medic at about 6:52 p.m.

After a long afternoon when the man alternately said he would surrender and then reneged, law enforcement personnel started notifying neighbors along Hoff Road shortly after 6 p.m. that the end of the standoff was approaching.

Law enforcement personnel started lobbing ban grenades into the trailer at about 6:27 and started lobbing teargas containers moments later.

At about 6:40 p.m., the man staggered from the trailer and was seen lying on the ground. He didn’t respond when a K-9 was deployed.
