Standoff ends peacefully in Council Bluffs


Police in Council Bluffs say a standoff with a man in a garage ended peacefully after nine hours.

Officers went to the home of Donald Shamblen to serve a warrant for failing to appear in court around 5:30 p.m. Monday.

Police say Shamblen told officers he wouldn't leave and then ran inside a garage and closed it tight. Officers feared he may be armed and brought in SWAT officers and negotiators.

The 56-year-old was brought into custody around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday with no reports of gunfire or injuries.
