What police thought was a possible hostage situation on the 2300 block of R Street ended quietly after a tense 30 minutes or so. One version of what happened has a domestic dispute over a woman escalating to the point where one man went for his shot gun.

When police arrived, they thought this man might still be in the house. They went in shields up to help an elderly woman from the house. They then went back into the house in force but the man had left before they had ever arrived. It is believed that the man was armed when he left the house.
