Police asking Provo residents near 2800 West to shelter in place after man barricades himself in house

PROVO — Police are asking residents near 2800 West in northwest Provo to shelter in place while after a man has barricaded himself in a home following a domestic violence incident.

A woman and her 5-year-old child were leaving a man’s house Sunday night when the man threatened the woman with a gun, Provo police detective Paul Shade said. Police do not know the relationship between the man and the woman but he might be the child’s father, Shade said.

The woman and child were able to leave the house and call the police and a SWAT team has been called out to handle the situation, Shade said. Anyone within a quarter mile of 2800 West and 2900 West should shelter in place, he added.

As of 11 p.m. Sunday, there were no updates on the situation.
