LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say a man is in jail after a two-hour standoff with Las Vegas police near Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall.

KLAS-TV reports that police say a man in his 30s got in an argument with his father on Monday night. Police say the son poured gasoline inside the home and on himself after the argument escalated and began releasing natural gas into the home.

Police say Southwest Gas complied with a request to shut off the gas to the home.

Officers say the son also had a handgun.

Police took him into custody around midnight. No one was hurt.
