An armed man is barricaded in an apartment near Las Vegas Boulevard and Pebble Road.

Metro Police and SWAT are at the complex which is in the 2800 block of Pebble Road. Police received a call around 6:30 a.m. to do a welfare check on the person in the apartment. Shortly after that call, they received several calls from residents who reported hearing gunshots coming from the apartment, police said.

There are reports the man was seen on his balcony with a rifle, police said.

This is a developing story.
