A man in his 60s died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound during an east valley standoff with Las Vegas police Friday night.
The man had barricaded himself inside a trailer in the 2600 block of Betty Lane, near the intersection of Nellis Boulevard at Carey Avenue, a little before 4 p.m., police said. SWAT was called to the scene and negotiated with him for hours. Police said the man shot himself shortly before 9 p.m.
Metro supervisor Lt. Yaz Yatomi said the incident began with an argument between two men. One man stabbed the other in the arm area. Those injuries were not life-threatening, Yatomi said, and the wounded man is recovering at University Medical Center.
The police investigation was ongoing Friday night.
