Kansas City police have identified the man shot and killed by a police sniper yesterday following a standoff and hostage situation.

Police identified the man as 18-year-old Blake Bowman.

Several news reports gave the same story. Bowman, who police considered a suspect in an armed carjacking from last week, was spotted near 46th Street and Sterling Avenue Thursday. So Bowman ran into his mother's house in the 10900 block of East

51st Street.

A two-hour standoff ensued, and finally ended with Bowman coming out of the house

with a knife to his mother's throat. Bowman refused to drop the knife and a sniper fatally shot him.

Bowman's mother was not injured.
