22765405_BG1A neighborhood on the westside of the valley was locked down for several hours Thursday night.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department told 8 News NOW that someone was firing gunshots into the air Thursday night on the 6200 block of Ilanos near Lake Mead Boulevard and Torrey Pines Drive. That person was arrested but the gun was not found.

Metro believes the gun is in a home in the area or a vehicle. Police obtained a search warrant from the District Attorney to put the neighborhood on lock down while they looked for the gun.

According to Metro, seven people were taken out of the home in custody. They have not been arrested and charged yet. Charges could come later, depending on background checks.

SWAT cleared the area and Metro searched the home.

Metro gave neighbors the opportunity to evacuate, but everyone elected to stay in their homes.
