Local News

WEST JORDAN (News4Utah)- A woman is dead after police say a homeowner shot and killed her after she broke into their home.

It happened around 5:30 a.m. at 6846 West Grevillea Lane.

Investigators say a husband, wife, their child, and the husband’s mother were awoken when their dog started barking.

The husband grabbed a gun and went down the stairs to investigate, officials said.

Police say the man shot and killed the woman after a “brief altercation”.

“Obviously this is a traumatic experience for all involved,” said Scott List, West Jordan Police Department. “We’re trying to take care of the people inside the house but we’re also trying to get statements from them as to what happened — what they saw, what they heard, those types of things,” he added.

The woman was later identified as Makayla Yeaman, 23.
