A man in Chanute held police in a standoff on Sunday afternoon before peacefully surrendering.


Chanute Police responded to the area of the 100 block South Highland for a domestic disturbance. After meeting with an adult female and three juvenile children, officers quickly learned that a male subject was inside the house armed with a shot gun. The lady mentioned, before she left the residence, the male subject had threatened the four of them with the firearm.

After a short period of time, 30-year old James Fredrick Rose of Chanute came out of the residence and turned himself into law enforcement peacefully. He was arrested on 4 counts of aggravated assault and domestic battery.
