LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A standoff at a home in east-central Las Vegas Thursday afternoon ended peacefully one person in custody.

The standoff started about 1 p.m. near the intersection of Del Mar and Burnham avenues, according to police.

Las Vegas Metro police said they were trying to serve a search warrant on a man identified as 25-year-old Emanuel Cortez at the home. They said that Cortez refused to come out, and the standoff began.

A spokesman for the Clark County School District said nearby Valley High School was not locked down.

Cortez was taken into custody without incident.
