Las Vegas police in standoff with barricaded suspect in west valley
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - Las Vegas police arrested one suspect after responding to a morning barricade near the intersection of S. Grand Canyon Drive and Hacienda.
Authorities said officers arrived there at about 5:43 a.m. in response to a domestic violence situation. Police said that two roommates got into a confrontation that led to one of the men having to be taken to hospital, where the victim was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
At one point, the suspect barricaded himself inside the home and refused to come out of the residence.
According to LVMPD, several people share the residence. Carlos Leyzo, a neighbor, told FOX5 he was watching TV when he heard some loud bangs. When he looked outside, he saw several Metro units.
“Didn’t expect this in my own backyard,” he said.
A man who claims to also be a roommate of the two men who were fighting said the pair started arguing in the kitchen. One of the men then went upstairs and the other followed him.
“I heard the walls banging and everything,” the purported roommate said.
A female roommate managed to separate the two and took the victim to the hospital. The suspect reportedly stayed behind and started cleaning the room using a bloody sheet.
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
