Carl Junction man wanted by federal authorities now in custody

Updated:
A Carl Junction man wanted by federal authorities is now in custody.

A standoff this morning in a Joplin neighborhood results in three arrests, one of which was of a suspect under a federal warrant.

Some residents in the neighborhood are concerned about their safety.

"It's very close to home," said Jackie McDaniel, neighbor.

McDaniel lives across the street from the home at 803 South McKinley Avenue where the standoff took place.

She says her neighborhood has been growing increasingly less quiet.

"It was like a three ring circus when the police blocked the street with their lights and things flashing," McDaniel said.

Shortly after 5 a.m. on Thursday, Joplin Police received information that a wanted suspect, Joseph Shane Endicott, was located at the address.

After the SWAT team arrived, two women inside the residence came out and were arrested for obstruction.

Endicott refused to cooperate until finally exiting the residence around 9:15 a.m.

"After some time of trying to negotiate with the suspect, we did introduce gas into the residence to try to illicit a response from the suspect," said Lieutenant Matt Stewart, Joplin Police Department.

Officials say Endicott is a Joplin Honkies gang member with a long criminal record, wanted by the US Marshal's Service.

"He has a federal US Marshal's warrant for escape from custody and the original charge on that was for weapons violation, so we did consider him to be a dangerous suspect," Stewart said.

Officials say Endicott's criminal history dates back to 1998, and ranges from auto theft to narcotics use, along with three assault charges.

Nearly 35 officials, including the SWAT team, responded to the incident, which is currently still under investigation.

"There may be some further charges from us, from this incident," Stewart said.

As for neighbors like McDaniel, they plan to stay a little more on guard and are glad no one was hurt.

"Definitely keep your eyes open," McDaniel said. "Watch your back."

Endicott was also involved in a shooting incident on October 3 in Lawrence County.

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office has issued warrants for two counts of first degree assault, unlawful use of weapon, and armed criminal action.

Endicott was taken to the Joplin jail and will soon be turned over to federal marshals.
