Investigators discovered the stabbing originally happened at a residence in the 700 block of East Ashton Avenue. When police arrived, they found multiple people inside the residence. Police say some of the people were uncooperative or refused to exit the home when officers arrived.

Out of caution, authorities called in SLCPD SWAT, crisis negotiators, and social workers to aid in the investigation. Neighbors were asked to shelter in place during this time. Eventually, authorities detained nine people from inside the home after asking them to exit using a loudspeaker.

SLCPD detectives are still investigating the events that led up to the stabbing. They are questioning the detained individuals to determine if any criminal charges will be applied.
