On Monday evening, the 26th, Sikeston DPS officers responded to the 200 block of Dye Street in reference to a barricaded suicidal subject. When they first arrived, they made contact with the family members, who told officers they heard gunshots coming from the bedroom where the man was. Officers contacted a special operations group. Sergeant John Broom tells KZIM KSIM they heard additional gunshots while negotiators were on their way.
He was transported to a local medical facility where he was given a mental evaluation. He is in custody at this time.
