Davenport police were involved in a four-hour standoff with a man Sunday night at the Woodland Apartments at 1935 W. 40th St. 

Police said the call came in about 5:15 p.m., and no one was injured during the incident. 

Dawn Kerr, property manager at the apartments, said a man’s sister reported that he was suicidal and the man subsequently locked himself in his apartment. 

“There was no gunfire, just a threat of suicide on his part,” Kerr said. “We took measures to prevent that, and he was taken from the apartment safely.”

Members of the Davenport Emergency Services Team were on scene as well as the department’s mobile command unit. 

Kerr said that despite the stress of the situation, she was appreciative of how the police handled it. 

“Big thanks to the Davenport PD for acting as quickly and professionally as they did to make sure that everyone was safe in the area,” Kerr said.
