A tragic ending to a police stand off in Bettendorf Wednesday night. Officers responded to a disturbance call in the 5500 block of Joshua Street. That's in the Highlands neighborhood near 53rd Street and Devil's Glen Road.

Police were called on a report that two people were in the home and one of them had a gun. When police arrived, they surrounded the home and closed off some streets. The Scott County Emergency Command Center was brought in as well as officers from the Rock Island County Sheriff's Office and the Davenport Police Department.

They determined that one armed person was in the home. After several hours, the stand off ended peacefully. The county attorney and the police department concluded there were no grounds for criminal charges and police left the area at approximately 6:10 p.m.  However, they were later called back and found a body in the home.

No foul play is suspected and the city says there is no criminal investigation.
