LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- Metro's SWAT unit was involved in a standoff event this afternoon in the central part of the valley.

The standoff was at the Pinewood Apartments on Swenson Street and Flamingo Road. Metro Officer Larry Hadfield said the situation had ended with no one in custody.

The suspect fired off a few rounds as the incident unfolded.

"It originally came in at 10:35 this morning as a domestic dispute call, but now it is standoff situation with one man in an apartment," Metro Officer Laura Meltzer told News 3 earlier this afternoon. "We don't believe anybody is injured, nor do we think there are other people in the apartment at this point."

Meltzer said several nearby apartments were evacuated.
