WEST BOUNTIFUL, Utah — After nearly seven hours, police in West Bountiful say a SWAT standoff that resulted from a domestic violence situation has ended Tuesday night with the suspect surrendering to police.
According to police, they were notified of a domestic violence situation in the area of 200 N. 800 West at 1:42 p.m. on Tuesday. Once on scene, officers were able to evacuate those in the home, except for the suspect.
Police say this wasn’t an active shooter situation. Out of an abundance of caution, however, police asked those individuals in the area to shelter in place.
Police say they worked to establish communication with the suspect in an effort to get him to surrender.
Law enforcement personnel from Centerville, West Bountiful, Bountiful, Woods Cross, plus a SWAT team have responded to the scene.
Police say 800 West will remain closed between 400 North and 500 South until there is a resolution to the situation.
