The main suspect in a Hutchinson police standoff last month has been released from the hospital and charged by the state.

The Hutch Post says 21-year-old Brendan Jones was charged Wednesday with aggravated battery, criminal possession of a firearm and felony interference with law enforcement.

18-year-old Tyson Samuels is also charged with aggravated battery for his involvement in the wounding of 19-year-old Jacob Foley.

Brendan Jones and Tyson Samuels are accused of being involved in an incident that resulted with Jones allegedly pulling out a gun and shooting Foley in the leg. 

The incident led police to search in the area until a tip led them to a house in the 300 bock of West 16th Street where Jones and Samuels had been hiding.  Samuels surrendered peacefully but the standoff ended when Jones eventually exited the house and shot at police who returned fire, injuring Jones. 

Jones was taken into custody and sent to a Wichita hospital but has since returned to Reno County on a $750,000 bond. 

Samuels is suspected of being involved in a separate aggravated robbery case and has another court date set for July 17.
