COLORADO SPRINGS — A shelter-in-place alert for a northeastern Colorado Springs neighborhood was lifted Monday night after police arrested a barricaded suspect.

Police said around 6 p.m., they got a call about a disturbance involving a gun on Dream Weaver Drive, which is in a neighborhood in the area of Austin Bluffs Parkway and Dublin Boulevard. Police said a man was trying to serve civil paperwork when the man he was trying to serve went into the house and pointed a gun at him.

When officers arrived, the suspect again ran into the house and refused to come out, according to police. With the help of crisis negotiators, police eventually arrested him without further incident.

Police sent out an emergency alert around 7:30 p.m. asking residents in the area to shelter in place while they negotiated with the suspect. Around 10:30 p.m., they sent out another alert saying the police activity had concluded.
