A person refusing to come out of an east valley home after a reported domestic dispute prompted Metro police to send out their SWAT unit and evacuate a neighborhood on Tuesday.
Police were called to the 5600 block of Blue Sea Street, near the intersection of Charleston and Nellis boulevards, shortly after 10 a.m., Metro spokeswoman officer Laura Meltzer said.
While police were conducting an investigation into the reported dispute, someone involved in the incident locked themselves in a different neighboring home, Meltzer said.
Police do not believe there is anyone else is in the house but are taking the necessary precautions, Meltzer said.
Metro describe the person barricaded in the house only as male. Police are not sure whether he has a weapon.
