LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police in Las Vegas say a motor scooter rider with a gun has surrendered after keeping police at bay and traffic snarled for more than three hours at a busy shopping center crossroads.

Officer Laura Meltzer says the man dropped the weapon about 9:30 a.m. Monday, after threatening suicide when he was stopped while riding the scooter about 6:15 a.m. at Decatur Boulevard and Fair Center Parkway.

That’s a few miles west of the Las Vegas Strip, and a block south of Charleston Boulevard near the busy Westland Fair shopping center.

Meltzer says the man is expected to get a psychological evaluation, and it’s not clear if he’ll face criminal charges.

She says the good thing is that he’s safely in custody and nobody was hurt.
