Police say a body was found in the same home where a stand off Wednesday, shut down a Bettendorf neighborhood.
Police were called to the Highland's subdivision, just off 53rd Street for a second time around 7pm Wednesday Night, and that's when they found the body.
Police first got to the scene around 3:30 Wednesday afternoon for a disturbance at the corner of Ridge Circle and Joshua Street.
Police say it was a family dispute involving two people, but when police arrived one man in his 40's, armed with a handgun, was the only one inside the house.
An eyewitness who says he watched the scene unfold from his window, tells us a police swat team of about 15 officers and armored vehicles surrounded his neighbors' house.
Police say the standoff ended around 6 PM, but an hour later officers were called to the same house for a second time.
"This is a big disruption to the neighborhood, and we do appreciate their patience the last few hours, but we feel it is safe, that's why we pulled off," said Chief Phil Redington.
Police have not identified the body, and whether or not the death is believed to be suspicious police haven't commented.
Scott County and Davenport also assisted Bettendorf PD.
Police ask if neighborhood residents have any questions regarding Wednesday's events to contact them.
