Man barricades self in mobile home, threatens officers

Barricaded man

Metro Police responded to a mobile home community in the eastern Las Vegas Valley after a man barricaded himself inside his trailer this morning and threatened to shoot at officers.

Metro spokeswoman Officer Barbara Morgan said marshals served the homeowner an eviction notice last week and went to the home about 7:30 a.m. in the 3000 block of Cabana Drive to evict him. Morgan said marshals noticed signs were posted all over the home threatening to shoot officers if they entered.

The location is near the intersection of East Vegas Valley Drive and South Nellis Boulevard. Neighbors have been evacuated but no streets have been closed, police said.

Morgan said police have made phone contact with the man and are trying to persuade him to leave the home.
