Salt Lake City police closed a Rite Aid store on North Temple on Wednesday afternoon for several hours after a man allegedly entered carrying a Molotov cocktail and barricaded himself in the pharmacy area.
The man was taken into custody at about 4 p.m., after he was talked into surrendering by police negotiators. He was alert and looking around as he was transported from the store by stretcher to an ambulance. He was taken to the hospital for treatment, where he remained on Thursday morning, police said.
SWAT, an ambulance and a fire engine responded to the Rite Aid near 900 W. North Temple, and officers closed off the parking lot as a precaution.
