After several hours of negotiating with a man on Monday night, Las Vegas police were able to convince him to put down a weapon and come down off a roof in the central valley.
Officers responded about 9:05 p.m. to the 3600 block of Seneca Circle, near East Twain Avenue and South Maryland Parkway, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. David Gordon said. The man was on top of a roof cutting himself with a knife. He eventually threw the knife off the roof and came down on “his own accord,” Gordon said, adding that the man was taken to a hospital for self-inflicted stab wounds and would later be booked.
Police implemented “modest evacuations” in the area.
