A 48-year-old Taylorsville man was in jail Wednesday after he surrendered to SWAT officers at the end of a tense armed standoff.
Taylorsville police Sgt. Tracy Wyant said the incident began as an alcohol-fueled domestic dispute call shortly after 10 p.m. Tuesday. When officers arrived, they were able to get both a woman and her granddaughter out of the residence near 3500 West and 5600 South, but the male suspect remained inside, armed with a rifle and refusing to come out.
"At one point after the initial response by police, one shot was fired inside the residence. Due to the circumstances, we called the SWAT team out to the location," Wyant said.
