Bellevue police make arrest in standoff


    Bellevue police say people are safe to return to their homes near 35th Ave and Sheridan Circle.

    Police had asked people to clear out in the middle of a stand off that brought large numbers of police into the neighborhood.

    Officers say one person was arrested.

    They were called to the home shortly after 3 p.m. Tuesday for a well-being check.

    Once officers got to the home, the call was changed to a shots fired call.

    Officers could be seen in the neighborhood with their guns drawn.

    Police tell Fox 42 they decided to set up a perimeter and called SWAT in.

    Lewis and Clark Middle School was put on lockdown. The nearby Leonard Lawrence Elementary was not put on lockdown. Bellevue Public Schools officials say the school was let out before the police were called in.
