Rosemount man arrested after standoff, threatened to 'take out' neighbors


A Rosemount man was arrested and could be charged with making terroristic threats after a standoff with police Saturday night, during which he said he planned to "take out his neighbors," the Rosemount Town Pages reports.

Four local police departments plus the Dakota County SWAT team responded and set up a command center near the home in the 3200 block of Coleshire Path, the publication reported. More than 300 people in the nearby area were contacted and told to stay in their homes and turn off the lights.

Negotiators talked with Timothy Richard Nelson for two hours before he surrendered to police, the Town Pages reports.

No one was injured and no weapons were found in the home. No one else was in the residence.
