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.”
