A North Las Vegas man was arrested on April 6 after threatening phone calls resulted in a lockdown and concern about a shooter at Nellis Air Force Base.

According to the arrest report for 29-year-old Jason Lacamera, several threatening voicemails were left for an official at the base.

Lacamera reportedly began calling the official on March 26. During each call, he demanded for someone from the Marine Corps headquarters be sent to talk to him.

The caller would threaten to kill a Marine every day that he was ignored.

On April 4, a 911 caller said there would be a shooting if the police did not respond immediately. When dispatch asked the caller to identify himself, he hung up.

The same man called a short time later and yelled that shots had been fired and police needed to go to the base.

The police responded and the base was put on lockdown while police and Nellis security investigated the claim. When nothing was found, the lockdown was lifted.

Lacamera was arrested by Las Vegas police on April 6. At that time, he admitted calling the official and reporting a shooting.

Lacamera also told police that he had weapons and 15 guns were found in his roommate's room.
