DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - Police are working on an active investigation in Davenport following a “citizen aid” call they responded to on Wednesday evening.

Police say at 11:55 p.m., they responded to the call in the 1400 block of West 4th Street at a multi-family complex.

A negotiator could be heard speaking loudly over a megaphone overnight in Davenport during the call.

“We don’t want to see you get hurt,” a negotiator could be heard saying. “We want to keep everyone safe. Please come out the back door with your hands in the air. It’s the only way we can make sure everyone is safe tonight.”

During the call, police say an officer encountered an unrelated armed individual. The police department’s emergency services team responded to conduct a search warrant.

TV6 previously reported first responders on the scene could be seen working to get the wanted person safely into custody at 4 a.m. It’s unclear what charges if any, that person could be facing, but police say at this time no one is in custody.

The incident remains under investigation and no further information has been made available at this time.
