One of the suspects involved in a standoff in Hutchinson on Thursday has made his first appearance in court. 

Tyson Samuels, 18, is jailed on 26,500 bond for interference with law enforcement and aggravated robbery in connection with a prior case.

Officers responded at around 3 a.m. Thursday to a shooting in the 300 block of West 8th Street. They arrived to find 19-year-old Jacob Foley with a gunshot wound to the leg. 

Police later got a tip that sent them to a home at 304 West 16th Avenue and were able to confirm that Samuels and another suspect, 21-year-old Brendan Jones, were inside. 

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 remains in custody at a Wichita hospital.

The Hutch Post reports Samuels faces an aggravated robbery charge for allegedly robbing a person in April.
