Lawrence police officers surrounded a mobile home in south Lawrence on Wednesday night after a man refused to come out of the home.

Lawrence police Sgt. Rick Nickel said officers were called to the Easy Living mobile home park, 3323 Iowa, after receiving a call that someone broke a window at a home.

The residents inside at the time were not injured but immediately called police.

As of 9:45 p.m., a possible suspect in the case was inside another unit and not responding to repeated requests by officers.

At 10:50 p.m., Lawrence police Sgt. Mark Warren said police had successfully contacted the subject in the unit and there was "no danger to the public."

Warren said officers were "wrapping up" at the scene.

Lawrence police Sgt. Ted Bordman confirmed Thursday morning that the incident reached a peaceful resolution without any arrests being made.

If police want you to take safety precautions, why wont they let people in their houses? People are stuck outside their homes in the rain and their children are at home with a babysitter but yet they cannot get in their home to make sure everyone is safe....hmmmm thats nice! If they arent involved whats the point in making them wait?! Let me tell you I would raise hell if I could not get to my house where my children are! If you want them to be safe let them in their house and out of the line of fire!

as for what happend the night of the 24th really it is none of your business.

The comment that ashmcglinn made it really was on my behalf. I was one of them left out in the rain while the standoff was going on. As well as my children were at a home that is right across the street from the house that the standoff was at. and really i live amost right across the street from the house the standoff was at.

As for not being allowed in to our homes yes we were not allowed in the house till the police were able to get in contact with the person the standoff was for.

Being that the person the standoff was for has not harm anyone the whole thing was uncalled for.

pywacket~ story being that a stand off occurred. If you do not know the facts then why worry about it. I was simply making a statement on how they said to go inside but yet they were not allowed to. Nobody was hurt and nothing came out of it but the fact remains that they were not allowed to get their children or even get to the house in which their children were at.

As for were I live, that is NONE of your concern! Why would you even ask that? I did not say that I was involved so why other than trying to make yourself look like a jerk about the whole situation would you make such a comment...If I want to make comments I can, this is why this board is available to me and anyone else so please type freely.

As for telling me to shut up, I will not shut up! My nieces and nephew were involved in this and if you were a parent /family member at all you would be outraged as well, or at least one would hope you would be. From the sounds of your message you could care less.

pywacket~ As for the facts now, all is well and you should not worry your pretty little heart any longer.
