Residents at the Civic Square Apartments complex near downtown Pleasanton woke up Wednesday morning to a shelter-in-place following a domestic dispute that ultimately ended with one arrest.

Jacob Mauck, 34, was arrested and booked into the Santa Rita Jail on suspicion of criminal threats, brandishing a firearm, and being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to a police news release.

The standoff started at 7:36 a.m. when police said they got a call regarding a domestic dispute at the 4800 block of Bernal Avenue.

"When officers arrived, the victim exited the residence and confirmed that a man, Jacob Mauck, was still inside and armed with a handgun," according to the news release.

Police then issued an AC Alert calling for a shelter-in-place at the apartment complex and for nearby residents.

They also clarified that it was not a hostage situation, attempting to correct information included in an AC Alert from the city of Livermore on Wednesday morning that described it as a hostage situation for which PPD was calling for SWAT support.

At around 10:30 a.m., Mauck surrendered following negotiation efforts from PPD, the Crisis Negotiation Team, East County Tactical Team and the Alameda County Sheriff's Office UAV unit, police said. The shelter-in-place order was then lifted at 11:05 a.m.
