KENOSHA — A seven-hour standoff took place at 52nd Street and 24th Avenue in central city of Kenosha.
It ended as law enforcement personnel and equipment left the scene after 10 p.m. However, little information has been released about what exactly happened and no information was known as of Wednesday afternoon whether a man in a house there came out.
The scene was blocked off for hours as local authorities called out to the man, saying they had a warrant for his arrest.
The standoff started before 3 p.m. Authorities blocked off the intersection almost in its entirety two to three blocks in every direction.
The Kenosha Police Department, Kenosha County Sheriff's Department and the county-wide tactical response squad set up a command post nearby with heavily armed officers ready to fire rifles and tear gas.
A robot made several attempts to breach a front window of the gray duplex where the suspect was believed to be holed up well past 8:30 p.m.
A crowd of about 300 people gathered by nightfall, and five large city dump trucks blocked their view.
