GERING, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say three inmates peacefully ended their brief disturbance at a jail in the Nebraska Panhandle.
Scotts Bluff County Sheriff Mark Overman says the three had barricaded themselves in a cell at the jail in Gering around 7 p.m. Monday and refused to come out. They were armed with broken handcuffs and other makeshift weapons.
But Overman says they surrendered around 8:30 p.m. after talking to deputies and after several officers from the Gering force and the Nebraska State Patrol showed up to help.
No injuries were reported.
