KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A homicide person of interest was arrested Thursday after a dramatic standoff outside a Kansas City home.

Soon after police said they arrested a person inside. They are a person of interest in Wednesday's homicide that happened just a few blocks away at 62nd Street and South Benton Avenue.

Officers were called to 62nd Street and South Benton Avenue about 4:30 p.m. on reports of a shooting.

When they arrived, they found the victim, later identified as 25-year-old Marcel T. Buchanan, dead in a car in front of a home.

About 6 p.m. Wednesday Capt. Tye Grant said police got information that a suspect might be in a house nearby and that's when they widened the scene and called in a tactical team. But a resident of that home gave them permission to come in and search. Authorities cleared the house without finding who thy were looking for.
