LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- It was a very tense police situation at a west Las Vegas apartment complex Wednesday night after a double shooting.

One of the suspects fled the scene; the other had barricaded himself inside an apartment with three children.

Dozens of officers, emergency personnel and SWAT swarmed the area, blocking off parts of Washington Street from Rainbow to Torrey Pines.

Residents were evacuated away from the complex as SWAT teams tried to communicate with the suspect.

Police say the suspect was apprehended without incident.

The three children were taken to their mother unharmed.
