LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities say one man is in custody after an overnight standoff with deputies in Dayton, about 10 miles east of Carson City.

Lyon County deputies had responded Friday night to a residence following a report of an armed man making suicidal threats.

Authorities say the deputies later learned that the man had also threatened to shoot other occupants of the home but those residents were able to make a safe exit.

Deputies surrounded the residence and tried to persuade the suspect for hours to come out.

He finally exited the residence Saturday morning unarmed.



Deputies were able to resolve the incident without using force.

The suspect has been jailed on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon with a domestic enhancement.
