Gardner Police and the Johnson County Sheriff's office are engaged in an apparent standoff with a stabbing suspect this morning.

Police were called to a mobile home in the 1000 block of Buffalo Trail around 1 a.m. Monday. The mobile home is part of the Conestoga Estates mobile home park, on east Santa Fe Street in Gardner, just south east of Main Street and Moonlight Road.

The suspect left the scene and was reportedly spotted running inside another mobile home in the same park.

Johnson County Med-Act reported a male with a stab wound to the neck, his injury was not believed to be immediately life threatening. The man was transported to an area hospital for further treatment.

Police quickly moved to the location where the alleged suspect is believed to be hiding out.

Gardner Police are currently confirming very few details surrounding the incident. Officers confirmed that the Johnson County Sheriff's Office's SERT is preparing to respond to the scene. SERT is the Sheriff's Emergency Response Team.

Shortly before 4 a.m., Johnson County's mobile command post arrived near the scene to assist. Reports indicate that at least two neighboring mobile homes have been evacuated as a precaution.

Police confirmed that the incident ended before 7 a.m.. Gardner Police say the Sheriff's Office SERT team was used in the incident but, this was not a standoff. SERT entered the mobile home after obtaining a search warrant. The stabbing suspect was taken into custody without further incident.

Gardner Police say this appears to be a dispute over a woman. An ex-boyfriend or possibly ex-husband stabbed the woman's new boyfriend. Again, the stabbing victim is being treated at an area hospital. He is expected to be released today.
