OREM, Utah — The Orem Police Department had a heavy presence in an Orem neighborhood Thursday morning after a man reportedly shot a gun during a family fight. After hours of negotiation, police took the man into custody.

Orem Police said it received reports of a man shooting a gun during a family fight at a home near 400 S 700 E at 4:10 a.m. Thursday.

When officers arrived, the family was able to leave safely because the man was in a separate basement apartment at the time.

Police said the man then stepped outside with a gun and exchanged fire with officers. 

He finally left the home after hours of negotiation with the police and went to the hospital for treatment for his injuries.

The Utah County Officer Involved Critical Incident Team is now investigating the incident.
