LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say they plan to continue to talk as long as it takes to resolve a standoff with a woman barricaded in a southeast Las Vegas home with a gun and her two young sons.

Police Sgt. John Sheahan said Tuesday that means that a key nearby crossroads at Tropicana Avenue and Mountain Vista Street will remain closed to traffic.

Police say the woman's husband and 10-year-old son got out of the Newton Drive house before police were called to a domestic dispute a little after 11 p.m. Monday.

Sheahan says another police standoff about 5 a.m. Tuesday at a Budget Suites near Flamingo Avenue and Boulder Highway was resolved peacefully with one person taken into custody on a warrant charge.

Sheahan says the two incidents aren't connected.
