Two Herriman schools locked down as police hunt assault suspect

First Published Apr 14 2014 01:19 pm • Last Updated Apr 14 2014 02:14 pm

Unified Police had two schools on lockdown Monday morning as they hunted for a man who allegedly threatened his mother with a handgun and then fled officers.

UPD Lt. Justin Hoyal said the 21-year-old suspect and his mother got into an argument at a Herriman residence near 12000 S. Bull Street, and when the son pointed the firearm at the woman she called 911.

When officers arrived about 8:30 a.m., the suspect climbed out of a rear window and ran.

Both Herriman High School and Copper Mountain Middle School were locked down until the suspect was found hiding in a vacant LDS Church seminary building near the middle school. He was taken into custody, unarmed.

Hoyal said officers later found the handgun at the house where the confrontation had originally taken place.

The suspect was booked into Salt Lake County Jail on suspicion of aggravated domestic assault and burglary.
