Las Vegas police respond to barricade situation in west valley

Updated August 8, 2017 - 3:51 pm

Las Vegas police are responding to a barricade situation Tuesday evening in the west valley at the same home where another barricade incident occurred Tuesday morning.

A man half-pulled a handgun on a woman about 2:30 p.m. on the 7900 block of Decker Canyon Drive and threatened to shoot her, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Grant Rogers said. Officers arrived when the woman ran out and called police, but haven’t succeeded at making contact with him.

The incident is being treated as a barricade situation again as of Tuesday evening. SWAT hasn’t been called to the scene, Rogers said.

Vegas Drive is shut down from Cimmaron Road to Gleason Way, near Buffalo Drive.

Police received the initial call about 7:30 a.m. about a domestic dispute between the same man and woman. Police said the man was alone in the home, but the woman was safely outside.

Police tried to communicate with the man, but he refused to respond then, too. Officers cleared the scene about 12:30 p.m. without arresting anyone, since they didn’t have enough evidence of a crime, Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Laura Meltzer said.
