Metro Police say they have the suspect in custody after a 12-hour barricade and a police dog is undergoing surgery after being stabbed numerous times.

The standoff started just before 9 p.m. Thursday when SWAT team units were called to Cambridge and Dumont, near Desert Inn Road and Maryland Parkway.

Police say they initially got a call about gunshots in the area. When they arrived, they say a potentially armed man barricaded himself in his home.

The neighborhood was evacuated since late Thursday night. 

Dean Peterson Elementary School was placed on lockdown Friday morning. Classes resumed later in the day.
