SHAWNEE COUNTY — A wanted suspect is in custody following a Wednesday evening standoff in Shawnee County.
The United States Marshal’s service was searching for the felony suspect on weapons violations charges, according to the Shawnee County Sheriff’s Department.
Information led officers to the 3600 block of SW Skyline Parkway suggesting 43-year-old Thomas Kent was at an apartment.
Just after 7p.m. law enforcement approached the residence and Kent fled onto the roof of the building.
With temperatures at or near freezing Kent became very uncomfortable, and eventually surrendered to the USMS at approximately 8:00pm.
Resources from the Topeka Police Department, AMR, and the Kansas Highway Patrol assisted in this incident.
