Two Omaha men were arrested Thursday following a standoff with police at a Lincoln home that lasted for more than two hours.

Nineteen-year-old Anthony Parks was cited for making terroristic threats and 20-year-old Javontae Timothy facing an aiding and abetting charge.

The incident began when Parks and Timothy drove up to a man and woman tossing a Frisbee in a grocery store parking lot at 11th and Cornhusker. Parks allegedly pulled a gun and asked, "What are you looking at?" Parks and Timothy soon drove away. The victims were able to get the car's license plate number and called police, who located the vehicle near North 11th and Judson streets.

Police, Nebraska State Patrol troopers and a SWAT team surrounded the residence around 4 p.m. Parks and Timothy eventually surrendered and were taken into custody. A woman inside the house, 21-year-old Kesha Hamilton, was arrested on an unrelated warrant.
