SALINA, Kan. (AP) - Two people are in custody after a four-hour standoff in Salina.

Salina police chief Brad Nelson says the standoff began about noon Monday when police received a report that two people wanted on outstanding felony warrants were inside the home. When officers arrived, the two refused to come outside.

After unsuccessful negotiations, police fired tear gas into the home about 4 p.m., and a 25-year-old woman wanted on drug charges came out. A 29-year-old man was taken into custody at the back of the home. He is wanted on Saline County drug charges, interference with and felony battery of a law enforcement officer. He is also wanted in Sedgwick County for two counts of aggravated assault with a deputy weapon and theft.

No injuries were reported.
