FARMINGTON, Utah (ABC4 News)- SWAT officers were called to a Farmington home Wednesday after reports that a man was being held against his will.

Farmington Police Chief Wayne Hansen said three men were inside the home located at 1060 North 1100 West “working on a business plan” when an argument began.

Chief Hansen said one of the men pulled out a gun and held another man hostage. The third man was able to escape and call police, he said.

Officers responded around 2:45 p.m. After about 30 minutes Hansen said the two men came out of the house peacefully.

A nearby charter school was on lockout as a precaution.
