LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas police and SWAT officers were in a standoff at a home in east Las Vegas after receiving reports of a person with a gun, police said.
Police were called to the area of Sahara Avenue and Nellis Boulevard at approximately 1:01 p.m. on Friday. As of 7 p.m., officers had left in the 5400 block of Club House Drive. Officials did not immediately provide an update on how the situation was resolved.
Everything was quiet for about 20 minutes, then we’ve just heard four loud bangs (possibly flash bang or smoke grenades) from the home’s direction. The loud speaker is asking for the person to come out again.— @SeanKTNV (@seanktnv) April 15, 2022

Two people were detained, and one person was "believed to be inside the residence refusing to surrender," police said.
SWAT and crisis negotiators were on scene, and citizens were asked to avoid the area.
