Gardner Police tell Operation 100 News, 27-year-old, Shane Tucker is in custody facing charges of Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer and Domestic Violence charges. Police were called to an apartment complex in the 700 block of E. Lincoln Lane shortly after 12:40 a.m. on reports of a domestic disturbance. Officers arrived and spotted a man who was wielding several knives just outside of the front door of one apartment.

Reports indicate that several knives were thrown at Police from the front door of the residence. The man retreated into the apartment. Reports indicate that there is an 11-month-old child inside the apartment with the suspect, however officers have not confirmed these reports. A short time after the male suspect ran into the apartment, officers at that scene reported gunshots being fired. Officers at the scene called for emergency assistance at that time. Numerous outside agencies responded from all over Johnson County.

Officers from; Gardner, Spring Hill, Johnson County Sheriff's Office, Kansas Highway Patrol, Olathe, Lenexa, Shawnee and Mission were all involved on the initial call for assistance.

Gardner Police have confirmed that shots were fired, believed to be from inside the apartment.

The Johnson County Sheriff's Office tactical team arrived at the scene around 2 a.m. as the man remains barricaded inside the residence. The Sheriff's Office will only say that they have made contact with the suspect inside the apartment and hope to maintain that communication.
