MURRAY, Utah (News4Utah) – A reported domestic violence situation turned into a SWAT standoff on Wednesday. It ended with one man in police custody.

Murray Police tell News4Utah that they received a call at about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday. The caller stated that a man was threatening a woman with a knife inside a home near 600 East and 6600 South. At the time of this article, police say it’s unclear if the call came from inside the home or if the call came from a third party outside of the home.

When the man did not cooperate with Murray Police, SWAT teams were called out around 4:00 a.m. Police say when the suspect realized what he was up against, he knew it was in his best interest to surrender peacefully. 

No one was injured during the alleged domestic dispute or standoff.
