  • The McPherson Emergency Response Team was called to a McPherson home Sunday afternoon for a report of an armed suicidal subject.
    A 47-year-old woman barricaded herself in her home for several hours before surrendering to police.
    No one was injured in the incident.
    The woman was taken into custody and transported to the hospital for treatment. She was not arrested.
    Because the home was near the McPherson College campus, the college was put on lock down during the incident.
    Chief Rob McClarty said the college cooperated well with police.
