Police standoff near Edison Street in Kennewick


KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Multiple law enforcement agencies responded to a standoff at Yellowstone Avenue and Edison Street Tuesday evening. 

Officers began using a loud speaker to call a person out of the home at about 8 p.m. to place him under arrest in connection to a Benton County Sheriff's case.

Over half a dozen patrol cars were on scene, and a number of officers were carrying their patrol rifles. 

The scene was still active at 8:30 p.m. with Yellowstone blocked off in both directions just west of Edison. 

A neighbor told KAPP-KVEW that police visit the home frequently due to apparent criminal activity. 

The Benton County Sheriff's Office, Kennewick Police, Richland Police and medics responded. 

This is a developing story. We are waiting to learn more.
