The Lincoln Police S.W.A.T. team was called in early Tuesday after a man barricaded himself inside an apartment.

The standoff near 21st and D streets forced an entire apartment building to evacuate. Police say the man is a burglary suspect, and held police at bay for two hours beginning at around 1 a.m.

Police were able to peacefully arrest 28–year–old Shane Glasgow.  Lincoln Police say Glasgow is a suspect in an attempted burglary near 29th and Sumner, and also a burglary at 26th and South.  Police say he and 23-year-old Natasha Quintana and 19-year-old Nicole Bruton broke into a home and stole a computer. Officers later spotted Glasgow running into a friend's apartment near 21st and D.  Police say he threatened officers, saying he had a gun from behind a bedroom door.

Neighbors forced out of their homes say this isn't the first time that particular apartment unit has caused problems.

“Activity past 3 in the morning, loud noise, loud music, people in and out unknown individuals that don't live here.  Basically, show complete disrespect for the tenants that do live here that pay rent,” said one neighbor.

Glasgow surrendered to police two hours later.  He was arrested for burglary, attempted burglary, resisting arrest, obstructing an officer, fleeing to avoid arrest and willful, reckless driving.  Quintana and Bruton were arrested for burglary.
