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.
