BRIGHTON, Colo. – Residents in Brighton were safe to return home after police responded to what they initially called “an active situation” at an apartment complex Tuesday morning.

Police initially tweeted officers were responding to the Riverwalk Apartments, located at 744 Mockingbird St., just before 10 a.m. Residents were also asked avoid the area as a precaution.

Just before 11:30 a.m., however, a Brighton PD official said via Twitter officers were clearing the scene after investigating a 911 call in the area.

"Due to the history of domestic violence at the residence, police responded immediately," the official said, adding that after a thorough investigation, police found no people inside the home and no threat to the community.
