LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – Neighbors who live near the multi-day barricade in Henderson say they’re thankful to finally be back home after evacuating over the weekend.

The suspect in that barricade was ultimately found dead Friday afternoon in a residence in the 200 block of Callen Falls Avenue, near Galleria and Water Street.

“It felt unreal, I was like is this really happening to us at our house?” a neighbor said.

That neighbor, who wanted to remain anonymous, said he was cleaning Friday morning when he heard SUVs pull up and car doors slamming across the street from his home.

Only a couple of minutes later, a law enforcement officer was at his front door, asking to use his second-floor window.

He says the officer used his wife’s desk to position a rifle out his second-floor window, pointing back toward the property in question.

“He asked us if we wanted to leave, I’m like ‘should we?’ he’s like, ‘I think you guys should,’” the neighbor said.

He and his wife spent the weekend at a friend’s house, and returned Sunday morning.

“It’s unreal. I’m glad, though, that it happened when the kids were away at school,” he says.

The Red Cross of Southern Nevada offered assistance to 20 residents displaced from six units in the complex that sustained damage during the police response.

FOX5 reached out to Henderson Police for an interview about the circumstances surrounding the barricade. They declined, but said more information could be released in the next day or two.
