53-year-old arrested today after 30-hour Des Moines standoff

DES MOINES (AP) — A 30-hour standoff that began with an exchange of gunshots has ended in Des Moines.

Police say they used a stun gun to gain custody of 53-year-old Michael Reed. He was arrested at 12:11 a.m. Monday.

Officers had been sent to the home Saturday afternoon to investigate a property dispute. They reported being shot at by an occupant, and they fired back. No injuries have been reported.

Sgt. Jason Halifax says negotiators eventually lured Reed onto the front porch of the home.

Reed is also known as Micky King, an Elvis Presley impersonator.

He remains in custody. Online court records don’t list the name of his attorney.
