UPDATE: Suspect apprehended after Lincoln standoff

LINCOLN, Neb. -- The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office says a wanted person barricaded inside a home near South 78th Street and Yankee Hill Road.

After a long standoff,  the situation on S 78th St has been resolved peacefully and the party is in custody.

Authorities say the suspect, 43-year-old Travis Swiggart, of rural Lancaster County, was wanted on multiple warrants.

Police were called to the scene at approximately 3:30 p.m. He was locked inside the home, which is owned by his mother.

Swiggart's son was also in the home, but Swiggart released him after negotiations. Swiggart remained in the home, however, until deputies entered the home in the late evening and took him into custody.

By late evening, deputies entered the home and took Swiggart into custody.

Swiggart was not injured, nor were any law enforcement officers.
