Man killed in standoff with police killed his brother 9 years ago
KANSAS CITY (AP) - A man who was fatally shot this week by police during a standoff at a Kansas City home had killed his twin brother in the same residence about nine years ago.
The Kansas City Star reports since fatally shooting his sibling in 2006 after a fight, Tyrone L. Holman has suffered from mental health issues, unsuccessfully filed disability claims and threatened federal workers.
On Wednesday, he refused to leave the home when process servers arrived to enforce an eviction notice, prompting the 12-hour standoff with police. Police said Holman eventually came outside and threatened officers with a hand grenade, which caused one officer to shoot at him.
Holman pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in his brother's death. He told police that the gun accidentally discharged during a struggle.
