LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) --  A barricade situation in the northeast valley ended with the suspect found dead inside of a trailer.

Police say the event started as a call about a reported stabbing.

The stabbing victim was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. The suspect, however, refused to come out of his mobile home near Nellis Boulevard and Cheyenne Avenue.

Metro police say he died of a self inflicted wound. Police found a gun and a knife inside of the trailer, but it is not clear at this point which one he used. Police found his body around 9 p.m.

The barricade started when a person called the police to report seeing a man with a rifle on the 2600 block of Betty Lane.
