Spokane Police served a search warrant in the 1500 block of W. Knox Thursday afternoon in connection to a kidnapping investigation. 

Little information about the case has been made public, but police told our partners at The Spokesman Review that the kidnapping did happen locally, and the house they raided was where the crime happened. 

Several people were taken into custody after the standoff, and Spokane Police also confirmed to KHQ that one person was arrested in connection to this kidnapping case after a standoff with Coeur d'Alene Police near Fernan Elementary. 

The investigation into this case is ongoing. As soon as we confirm any additional information, we will update this story.
