A standoff near 97th and Maple ends around 3:00am Thursday after a man barricaded himself in his apartment for hours.

Omaha Police officials say their officers arrived to the Colonial Apartments around 10:30 p.m. after the suspect got into an argument with his neighbor and threatened her with a gun.

When police arrived, the man would not come out of his apartment.

A police robot found the man hiding under his bed. He was safely taken into custody.

Charges are pending.
