EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah — Officials in Eagle Mountain have given the all clear after a hectic afternoon that included a shooting, a standoff, and four schools enacting lockdown procedures.

In a tweet Monday afternoon, Eagle Mountain City reported the “ALL CLEAR.”

The tweet indicated that the suspect is in police custody.

Late Monday night, the Utah County Sheriff’s Office identified the suspect as 61-year-old Mark Samuel Roberts, of Eagle Mountain. Police say he is being booked into the Utah County Jail in connection to multiple serious charges.


Cannon also said that the victim in the case, 72-year-old Mark Samuel Roberts, is expected to recover from his injuries.

Schools have also reopened and parents/legal guardians may pick up students. Additionally, Eagle Mountain City reports Pony Express Blvd. is open for motorists.

Earlier Monday afternoon, the Utah County Sheriff’s Office said in a tweet that authorities life-flighted one person in fair condition from a home at 4654 North Krestel Way.

At that time, one person remained in the home and was armed.


Eagle Mountain City previously used a tweet to report that the situation was a domestic incident and did not involve any of the schools placed on lock down.


Placed on lockdown were Cedar Valley High School, Frontier Middle School, Eagle Valley Elementary, and Mountain Trails Elementary.

Parents were originally unable to pick up their students. “Parents will not be allowed to pick up their student until the Utah County Sheriff lifts the “secure” order. We will let you know as soon as the “secure” order has been lifted,” the Alpine School District said in an email to parents.
