Police in Nevada say a standoff at a home involving a man who had a weapon ended peacefully just before noon today (Wednesday). Nevada police chief Mike Tupper says they were called to the home just after one A.M. the report of a person who was upset. He says they were over there for several hours talking to the person trying to help him resolve the issue, and about 11:50 A.M. it was peacefully resolved. The man was identified as 54-year-old Dan Gammon of Nevada. Tupper says although Gammon had a weapon — no one was threatened.He says it’s being handled as a mental health issue, and no crimes have been reported or arrests made. Tupper says it was “just a person who was having a rough go of it and needed some help.” Gammon is the former coordinator of Veterans Affairs for Story County, and was listed as a republican candidate for County Supervisor on the Story County website. An Ames newspaper report says he had dropped out of the race.
