OREM, Utah – At around 7:30 a.m., officers were responded to reports of a vehicle collision around 800 South Orem Boulevard. The suspect involved in the accident fled the scene.

Officers located the suspect around 1000 South 100 East where he fired shots at police while running towards a home. Officers returned fire before he made his way into the house, which was not his residence. He then barricaded himself in the house.

Police made verbal contact with the suspect and began negotiating. The other occupants of the home safely evacuated.

The suspect informed officers that he was injured and peacefully went into custody. He was transported to the hospital with injuries.
