Bettendorf police are continuing to investigate an incident that led to a three-hour standoff Wednesday afternoon, ultimately resulting in the suicide of a Bettendorf resident.
Police responded to a disturbance call about 3 p.m. in the 5500 block of Joshua Street. The disturbance involved two people, according to a news release issued by the city of Bettendorf, and one of the people had a handgun. When police arrived, only the person with the handgun was at the home.
The Scott County Emergency Command Center, Rock Island County Sheriff’s Department and the Davenport Police Department were called to assist at the scene. Roads in the neighborhood were blocked off.
“After an extensive investigation, the County Attorney and the police department concluded there were no criminal charges,” according to the Bettendorf news release, and police left the scene about 6:10 p.m.
At some point after that, police were called back to the home after a resident committed suicide.
Authorities have not yet released the name of the victim.
