COLORADO SPRINGS – A 32-year old man is in jail and faces possible charges after a standoff Wednesday night. There were some scary moments for residents along the 400 block of N. Cascade between Boulder St. and St. Vrain Street as neighbors were asked to leave and N. Cascade was closed in both directions.

Colorado Springs police officers took Justin Wederquist into custody and everyone was allowed back into the area at about 8:30 p.m. Details on what led to the standoff are unknown at this time.
