Shawnee Police called out their Special Tactics and Response (STAR) Team to assist with a situation at the Shawnee Station Apartments, late Thursday morning.

The apartments are on the northeast corner of W. 65th Street and Maurer Road.

Police were reportedly called to the area around 10:15 Thursday morning to check the welfare of a subject.

Around 11:30 a.m., Police could still be seen in the area of the apartment complex awaiting the arrival of the STAR Team.

Shortly after noon, Shawnee Police spokesperson Captain Dan Tennis told Operation 100 News, "there is currently an Operation 100 [situation involving a barricaded subject] going on at the Shawnee Station Apartments. There is a suicidal subject allegedly armed with a gun."

Johnson County Med-Act and Shawnee Fire were seen at the staging area near the Command Post.

Officials say the incident came to an end shortly after 2 p.m. when Police entered the apartment and found the man had taken his own life.

If you or someone you know is struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts, there is help available. Know the warning signs of suicide (SAVE.org Suicide Awareness Voices of Education). National and Kansas helplines. Calling 911 or going to the Emergency Room of a local hospital are also options.
