LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Las Vegas police said what started as a reported neighborhood dispute ended five hours later after a man surrendered to officers in the southwest valley.
At around 2:11 p.m. on Oct. 11, officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department responded to the 7000 block of Mountain Moss Drive near Rainbow Boulevard and Twain Avenue after a report of a person with a gun and what police described as a neighbor dispute.
According to police, the man is accused of threatening another person in the neighborhood with a gun. When officers attempted to contact the man he barricaded himself inside his residence and refused to surrender.
8 News Now spoke to residents living near the scene on Wednesday night.
“It’s really quiet and calm. Seeing that over there is really shocking,” Diego Alonso-Muneton said as he watched from behind his fence. “I saw three men in uniforms with large guns pointed at the two-story house and then when it started getting dark I saw two flashlights pointed at the two windows upstairs.”
At approximately 7 p.m. police stated that SWAT was able to negotiate the man’s “peaceful surrender.”
Police evacuated surrounding homes as a precaution and asked people to avoid the area before the man surrendered. Roads in the area reopened shortly after.
