Possible barricade related to south Las Vegas robbery

Multiple people have been detained in connection with a south valley robbery and barricade Wednesday morning.

The Metropolitan Police Department received reports about 2:50 a.m. of a resident who was robbed at gunpoint on the 300 block of Silverado Ranch Boulevard. The victim was uninjured, but property was taken, Metro spokeswoman Laura Meltzer said.

Metro’s investigation led officers to a residence on the 4700 block of Golden Shimmer Avenue, about 4 miles from the robbery, Meltzer said.

Five people inside the house were arrested over the course of several hours, Metro said. Police said there are no other people inside the residence.
