Police in Muscatine were able to successfully end a stand-off with an armed teenager holed up inside a convenience store.

Just after midnight Thursday, Jan. 9, 2013, police were called to the Circle K store on Cypress St. for a report of a male possessing a firearm. When police arrived they saw a person attempting to enter the store, holding a black handgun.

Police negotiated with the person, later identified as a 17-year-old boy, for about an hour and 40 minutes.  He gave up and handed over the firearm, which turned out to be a BB handgun.

The teen was taken to the hospital for evaluation. No one was hurt.
