Clark County deputies found a suspect dead inside a home late Tuesday night after they heard gunshots inside.

Deputies were called to the area of Northeast 10th Avenue and 149th Street at around 7 p.m. by a woman who reported a disturbance with her boyfriend that had lasted most of the day. They said they met with the woman down the street from the home and they said she told them she had been assaulted.

As they approached the home to contact the suspect, deputies said they heard gunshots from inside. They retreated and called in the SWAT team. Authorities then treated the situation as a standoff. Eventually, they entered the house and found the suspect dead.

The suspect's name has not been released.
