LAS VEGAS (AP) — A suspect in a California slaying has barricaded himself inside a Las Vegas apartment and claims to have hostages.

KLAS-TV reports investigators say the hostage situation began shortly before 6:30 p.m. Monday.

The man claims to have a woman and child inside the Camden Point Apartments on East Tropicana Avenue.

Metro Police Lt. Harry Fagel tells the Las Vegas Sun that it's unclear whether the man knows the hostages.

The station reports that police have evacuated several units at the complex.

The Las Vegas Sun reports that SWAT officers are trying to get the man to surrender.
