A Rock Island neighborhood is back to normal after being evacuated when police responded Sunday night to a call of a bomb threat.

The incident occurred about 7:30 p.m. when police received a call of a bomb threat / suicidal subject.

Police were told that a resident in the the 1800 block of 44th Street had explosive devices in his home and that he was going to detonate those devices.

The suspect also had reportedly turned on the natural gas inside the residence.

Responding units detected the odor of natural gas and began establishing a perimeter and evacuating surrounding residences.

Police negotiators were able to establish contact with the suspect, who eventually surrendered to police at 10:51 p.m., and was taken into custody without incident.

The suspect was transported to Trinity West Medical Center for evaluation.

The home was secured and searched with the assistance of a member from the Quad Cities Bomb Squad. No explosive devices were found within the residence or surrounding area.

The Rock Island Police Department was assisted by the Moline Police Department, Rock Island County Sheriff’s Department, and the Quad Cities Bomb Squad.

That was really gods grace that no bomb was found inside the home so that people got saved. But people feel that who ever done this must be caught. Many reviewed for the essay editing service that it's been a good cause for them to catch the culprit.


This incident has stopped every one's heart especially the neighbors of the suspect. I have gone through many paper writing websites for this news and anticipated to know what happened in the next moment.


Pray for the supect
