Johnson County Sheriff’s deputies were called to a home in Edgerton at 6:30 p.m. on April 10 on a report of a suicidal person.
The incident took place in the 19800 block of Edgerton Road.
According to Tom Erickson, public information officer for the sheriff’s office, the man refused to come out of the house.
A special team was brought in to establish communication with the subject, who then exited the house peacefully.
No charges will be pursued.
“Last night we were just trying to get him some mental health help,” Erickson said.
