Police evacuated residents at an east Las Vegas apartment complex Thursday amid calls of an armed barricaded man.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, officers responded to a domestic disturbance call just before 9 a.m. in the 2200 block of Sunrise Avenue, near Fremont Street and Eastern Avenue.

When police arrived, a person who was possibly armed refused to come out, according to Metro.

Police said a SWAT team was called to the scene. Metro also believed only one person, possibly a man, was being holed up in an apartment.

Evacuees were being directed to nearby Hollingsworth Elementary School during the police activity.
