(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) St. Joseph police continue to look for a suspect after a standoff at a home on the 1300 block of Penn Street.

Police went to the home around 3:00 p.m. Tuesday after investigators said they got information that a suspect wanted for questioning in recent shootings might be inside.

Officers surrounded the home and made several attempts to contact the suspect. Police eventually called in a tactical response team to go inside.

"Since it involves shootings the tactical team was called to help search for him. The subject was not inside once we entered," said St. Joseph Police Department Capt. John Olszowka.

Police did not give any other information about the suspect but said the investigation has been ongoing for a few months.

Temperatures started out on the mild side with most areas in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Monday was another warm and windy day with temperatures climbing into the lower 70s. With the dry conditions outdoor burning should be avoided Monday and Tuesday as low humidity and gusty winds continue. Winds will stay breezy over the next few days with wind gusts around 20-30 mph. A more active pattern of weather will settle in for most of this week with our first chance of light rain overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. A better chance for more moderate to heavy rain with possibly a few thunderstorms will move into the area Wednesday night into Thursday with a cold front. That front will stall south of our area late in the week, providing several more chances for rain throughout the rest of the week into the weekend. Temperatures will be a bit cooler after the cold front rolls through with highs back in the 50s.
