LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities say a man surrendered with weapons including an assault-style rifle after a Christmas Eve standoff at a motel near the Las Vegas Strip.

No serious injuries were reported in the incident that began late Wednesday with reports of a domestic disturbance and shots fired at the Howard Johnson motel on Tropicana Avenue near Koval Lane.

The Las Vegas Sun reports (http://bit.ly/1CR5OhB ) that police evacuated several surrounding rooms and talked the man into releasing a woman about 10 p.m.

Lt. Sean Toman says the woman was treated for minor injuries. She wasn’t identified.

The man surrendered about 1 a.m., and Toman says several weapons including an assault rifle were confiscated.

The man was taken to the Clark County jail pending an initial court appearance.
