BLACKWELL, Oklahoma -

A standoff in Blackwell has ended, but the suspect is missing.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers and Blackwell police officers were involved in the standoff that began Monday morning in Blackwell in the 300 block of E. Chrysler in Blackwell.

OHP Spokesperson Lt. Brian Orr said they were called out to the house around 6:40 a.m. and were told a suspect had barricaded himself inside the house.

Lt. Orr said they were told there were criminal charges pending against the suspect.  

Donald Chapman said he talked to the suspect early this morning, and he said he was going to kill himself.

"Said he took a whole handful of pills last night, said he's tired of all the stuff he's going through, said he has the rifle in the trunk and said he was planning suicide," Chapman said.

Chapman said he then called 911.

For hours, neighbors said they could not leave their homes as the standoff continued. Lt. Orr said a woman and boy were also inside the house for part of the time.

"From what we've been told, there was a female and a young juvenile that have come out of the residence on their own," Lt. Orr said.

Around 1:30 p.m. that tact team then gained entry into the house, only to find it empty.

Lt. Orr said a Blackwell police sergeant saw the suspect enter the house but was guarding it alone before the OHP arrived, and the suspect may have slipped out then.

In addition to clearing the house, the tact team also checked an outbuilding and the suspect wasn't there either.

The OHP tact team also completed a perimeter search of the area and still didn't find the suspect.
