LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - A man was arrested Monday night after a standoff involving Metro Police.

Police had been called to an apartment complex near Desert Inn and Maryland Parkway around 4:30pm after two men got into a fight, a disagreement that eventually escalated to the point where both drew guns on each other.

Once that happened, the standoff began with both Metro and officers from SWAT.

Several apartments in the nearby area were evacuated as a precaution.

The barricade didn't last very long, and the situation was eventually diffused peacefully. The names of the people involved haven't been released.
