An armed man barricaded himself and a woman inside his Caesars Palace room in Las Vegas after dragging the victim inside and tossing furniture out of a window into the pool area below.

Around 9.15 a.m. on Tuesday, according to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, a domestic violence disturbance was reported at the hotel and casino.

The woman looked to still be unharmed hours into the tense standoff, according police Commander Stephen Connell, however it is unclear whether she and the man are in a relationship.

“She is still in the room at this time. The female has been heard from and is still OK,” he told KLAS.

The man claimed police he was armed when they arrived at the hotel room but would not unlock the door.

Connell claims the authorities have not yet see a firearm. According to him, earlier reports of gunfire seem to be the result of the man hurling objects out of the hotel window.
