The Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Meade County Sheriff’s Office arrested Daryl J. Wilkerson of Meade following a standoff Sunday.

Sunday, before 7 a.m., the Meade County Sheriff’s Office requested KBI assistance after Wilkerson, who was confirmed to possess firearms, barricaded himself inside a home.

The KBI’s High Risk Warrant Team responded. A deputy from the Meade County Sheriff’s Office had contacted Wilkerson at about 5:30 a.m., when he tried to arrest him on allegations of harassment and assault. When told he would be arrested, Wilkerson ran into the home and refused to come out, instigating the standoff.

During the standoff, verbal contact was made with Wilkerson and negotiators attempted to convince him to surrender peacefully. At approximately 2:45 p.m., he emerged from the house in an angry state. Wilkerson was noncompliant with commands and attempted to return inside, prompting a KBI agent to fire and strike him with a less lethal munition. Wilkerson was still able to retreat into the house.

Approximately five minutes later, at 2:50 p.m., Wilkerson fired a shot through the south side of the house.

No law enforcement officers were hit by the round and negotiations continued.

Wilkerson finally came out of the residence peacefully at 4:50 p.m., and was taken into custody. He was booked into the Meade County Jail for aggravated assault and harassment by a telecommunication device, and additional charges related to the incident are expected, according to the KBI.
