SOUTH OGDEN, Utah (ABC4) – South Ogden residents living in the vicinity of the active SWAT situation in the area of 4500 South and Monroe Boulevard are being told to shelter in place by local authorities.

ABC4’s Jerad Giottonini on scene says around 7 p.m. on Tuesday, a family brought three victims of an alleged aggravated assault to the hospital. The alleged assaults are believed to have occurred during a domestic violence-related incident. Officials arrived at the home of the assault suspect and found a man in his late 50s inside, Giottonini reports.

Police learned the man had a firearm and attempted to negotiate with him to come outside. The man refused and several rounds were fired.

While there are no hostages, police currently do not know the status of the suspect. Officials are sending drones into the home to assess his condition before sending agents inside. No police have been injured in the standoff up to this point.

The area appears to be blocked off and the public is asked to adjust their commute to avoid the scene.

Multiple agencies are on the scene.
