    Three-Hour Police Standoff Ends Peacefully

    D.C. police have questioned four people in connection with a barricade situation in northwest Washington that lasted three hours.

    Things ended peacefully, but it made for a frightening scene. Dozens of officers, some in riot gear, converged on the 800 block of Decatur Street about 9 a.m.
    Seems the drama started when neighbors told police they saw a man grab a woman by the hair and drag her into a home. There were also reports of shots fired in that area.
    According to Cmdr. Kimberly Missouri, officers tried to communicate with the people inside the home. When the suspects didn’t respond, officers went inside and took two men and two women into custody.
    Despite reports of shots being fired, no weapons were found at the scene, Missouri said.
    So far, no one has been charged in the case. Police are still trying to get to the bottom of it.
