LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – The suspect in a mutli-day barricade in Henderson was ultimately found dead, according to Henderson Police.

The barricade began Friday afternoon in a residence in the 200 block of Callen Falls Avenue, near Galleria and Water Street.

On Saturday afternoon, HPD advised that the barricade was still ongoing, in a video posted to social media. HPD Sgt. Daniel Medrano said officers were involved in a shooting at about 8:45 a.m. Saturday morning with the suspect; however, no officers or the suspect were hurt.

On Sunday morning, HPD said the suspect was located deceased and police were reopening roads in the area.

“I feel like they’re doing the best they can right now because of what this individual has, long-range rifles, and they don’t want to see him use them to hurt anybody or kill anybody who is innocent here,” said a neighbor Saturday.

The Red Cross of Southern Nevada was also assisting 20 residents displaced from six units in the complex that sustained damage during the police response.

Police said they would release more information on the barricade in the coming days.
