BUTLER, MO (KCTV) -

Authorities took a man into custody after a chase and standoff at a motel.

The Bates County Sheriff Office assisted Butler police in a pursuit that ended behind the Days Inn, 100 Fran Ave.

The suspect ran from the vehicle, jumped through a hotel window and then barricaded himself in a different room.

Officers evacuated the motel, and eventually found the man hiding in a closet.

Initially, it was believed there was a second suspect. However, officers interviewed witnesses and surveillance videos from the business and determined that there was only one suspect.

Investigators have not released the man's name.
