The Clark County Sheriff's Office said 33-year-old Patrick Churchman on Friday barricaded himself in his parent's home in the 600 block of Northeast 184th Street with a combination of handgun(s), rifle(s) and shotgun(s).

Churchman had an arrest warrant for first-degree burglary - domestic violence, theft of a firearm, second-degree malicious mischief - domestic violence, and interfering with the reporting of a domestic violence incident.

Churchman was also wanted by the Clark County Sheriff's Office for second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm, felony violation of a no-contact order, and violation of an extreme risk protection order.
