LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — One person is in custody after a barricade situation near Bonanza Road and Eastern Avenue in Las Vegas.

Officers responded to reports of an illegal shooting shortly after 12:30 p.m., which led to the barricade on the 2800 block of Harris Avenue.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, SWAT, crisis negotiations and Clark County School District Police were all on the scene.

A male suspect was brought into custody by SWAT shortly before 3 p.m.

"Thankfully there was no loss of life on this incident at all," said Captain Carlos Hank with Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

Hank credited the training and tactics the officers used to bring the tense situation to a peaceful resolution.

"Our officers showed tremendous restraint from being shot at, they did not fire back in an effort to escalate the situation."

When asked if this shooting was connected to another shooting overnight at a hookah lounge, Hank said it was not. "We have no information that it would be connected to that shooting," he said.

Bonanza Road was blocked from Eastern Avenue to 28th Street for several hours while police responded.
