LAWRENCE, Kan. (KSNT) – Officers say they have arrested the suspect involved in a standoff last week in Lawrence.

The Lawrence Police Department reports on Wednesday that John Robert Berry, 27, has been arrested.

Police said that on August 30, officers responded to a mobile home in the 100 block of Maple Street in reference to a disturbance with weapons. Early details indicated a man was barricaded inside a home with a firearm as well as another individual who was unable to leave due to health issues. Using caution and voiding escalation, officers took up a perimeter position and began attempting to make contact with the Berry.

When officers used an investigative robot to gain entry into the home they discovered Berry was not there.
