Man in SWAT custody in northwest valley

An armed man in the northwest valley was arrested Saturday morning after a six-hour negotiation with a SWAT team, Las Vegas police said.

A domestic disturbance call to the 8300 block of Valleybreeze Avenue, near North Durango Drive and West Gowan Road, came in shortly after 1 a.m., Lt. Erik Lloyd said.

A man pointed a handgun at his girlfriend and her friend. The two were able to leave, but the man remained inside and was refusing to come out, Lloyd said.

SWAT was able to detain the man peacefully at 7 a.m., Lt. James Mizusaki said.
