A barricade situation in the northwest valley ended early Friday morning with Las Vegas police taking three suspects into custody. No one was injured.

A group of men robbed an individual on the street, and one shot at a bystander who tried to help the person being robbed, police said. Several witnesses were able to tell police the license plate number of the car the men escaped in. Police used this information to locate the alleged robbers at a home in the 8000 block of Sea Glen Drive, near Rampart and Lake Mead boulevards.

An unknown amount of people barricaded themselves inside the residence from about 10:30 p.m. Thursday until 8:54 a.m. Friday when SWAT entered and three were taken into custody.
