One person is dead after a shooting in Fairfax Monday morning.

According to Sgt. Jake Angle with Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop H, shortly before 9:30 a.m., a shooting at 611 Pine Street was reported to the Atchison County Sheriff’s Department.

“At approximately 9:41, (they) arrived on scene and confirmed there was one victim shot, Angle says. “That victim was taken from the scene and then a perimeter was set up around an apartment building there at 611 Pine Street.” 

Angle says negotiators were called in, but before they arrived, the suspect voluntarily exited the building and surrendered to law enforcement after about an hour.

No further information is being released at this time as the investigation is ongoing.
