A Cedar Falls man is dead following an overnight standoff with police. Officers were called to the Country Terrace mobile home park late last night on a report of a distraught man inside a residence with a gun.
Upon their arrival, police learned a woman and two children were also inside the trailer home. The Cedar Falls police tactical team was called in to negotiate with the man, who released the woman and children about an hour after the standoff began.
Authorities say the standoff ended after about 3 1/2 hours when the man shot and killed himself.
Authorities haven’t yet released the name of the victim.
