LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say a man surrendered with weapons including an assault-style rifle after a Christmas Eve standoff at a motel near the Las Vegas Strip.

No serious injuries were reported in the incident that began late Wednesday with reports of a domestic disturbance and shots fired at the Howard Johnson motel on Tropicana Avenue near Koval Lane.

The Las Vegas Sun reports (http://bit.ly/1CR5OhB ) that police evacuated several surrounding rooms and talked the man into releasing a woman about 10 p.m.

Lt. Sean Toman says the woman was treated for minor injuries. She wasn't identified.

The man surrendered about 1 a.m., and Toman says several weapons including an assault rifle were confiscated.

The man was taken to the Clark County jail pending an initial court appearance.

His name wasn't immediately made public.
