GEORGE NOORY IN LAS VEGAS: Get tickets now -- be there June 9!

(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–A Metro Police SWAT officer shot and killed a man who pointed an assault rifle at police after an hour-long standoff in the  5700 block of Maceta near Twain and Lindell in the predawn hours Tuesday.

Police spokesman Matt McCarthy says a roommate called police to report a man in the residence was armed with an assault rifle and threatening suicide.

Police established phone contact with the man and spoke with him off and on for about an hour before the man emerged from the residence and pointed an assault rifle in the direction of two officers. A SWAT officer shot and killed the man at that point.
