The Wichita (Kan.) Police chief decided to end a 32-hour standoff with a suspect that involved nine different SWAT teams by telling tactical officers to "take him out."
Chief Norman Williams gave a media briefing Monday on the standoff that began at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday and ended late Thursday. Police had cornered Jared Lee Woosypiti at the Southlake Village apartments. Woosypiti was wanted for opening fire inside a Kmart and stabbing his girlfriend July 4 at a Derby home.
Police documents obtained by the Wichita Eagle confirmed police gunfire killed Woosypiti. A police sniper fired from "a safe distance" from officers, chief said.
Woosypiti was allegedly making bombs with nails in them and had talked to a family member about "suicide by cop."
