Our previous coverage:

HERRIMAN, Utah — The Herriman City Police Department announced a SWAT incident Thursday morning. 

In an update to the media shortly before noon, Herriman Police Department Dep. Chief Cody Stromberg outlined the situation.

Stromberg said police were alerted to a woman breaking into a home at 6:45 a.m. on 11850 S Rushmore Park Lane in Herriman, Utah. A neighbor had witnessed the woman breaking a window and entering the home.

According to Stromberg, officers recognized the woman from an earlier disturbance at a Taco Bell and knew she was armed with a knife.

Officers entered the residence and deployed less-lethal munitions, at which point the woman barricaded herself in a room and began threatening the officers.

The SWAT team was deployed after the woman continued to threaten to kill law enforcement. 

Stromberg said law enforcement was continuing to negotiate with the woman to get her to surrender peacefully. Police have not identified who the woman is yet.

A shelter-in-place order for the immediate area is still active, and Stromberg advised that incidents like the one in Herriman can often take hours to resolve. The roads around the area are also restricted.
