Hutchinson standoff ends in shootout; man hospitalized

Posted: Updated:

A standoff in Hutchinson has ended with one man in custody and another hospitalized after an exchange of gunfire with police.

Officials with the Hutchinson Police Department say officers responded to a shooting call around 3 a.m. in the 300 bock of West 8th Street. Upon arrival, officers located 19-year-old Jacob Foley suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg.

After interviewing several people, police issued a "be on the lookout" warning for 2 suspects in the area. 

At around 6:30 a.m. officers received a tip that sent them to a home located at 304 West 16th Avenue. By 7 a.m. they were able to confirm that the main suspect,  21-year-old Brendan Jones, was inside the home. 

Officers contacted Jones by phone and tried to get him to surrender. Jones refused to surrender which prompted a lockdown on the neighborhood. Authorities were also able to determine that the second suspect, 18-year-old Tyson Samuels, was inside the home.

At around 11:15 a.m., after several hours of negotiations, Samuels surrendered peacefully and was taken into custody.

Authorities say a short time later, Jones told negotiators that he was coming out. Jones then came out of the house and began shooting at officers who returned fire, injuring Jones.

Jones was sent to a Wichita hospital but no update has been given on his condition.
