Ogden police remained mum Monday about the details of a fatal weekend standoff that left a man dead in his home after an exchange of gunfire.

Lt. Danielle Croyle confirmed that no officers were injured during the early Sunday morning incident at a residence in the 100 block of Fourth Street. However, she would not release the identity of the dead man or say whether it was thought he died from police bullets or a self-inflicted gunshot.

Croyle referred all questions to the Weber County Attorney's Office, where phone calls went unanswered Monday due to the Veterans Day federal holiday. Emails to Weber County Attorney Dee Smith also went unanswered.

Police were called to the home about 2:30 a.m. Sunday on a report of domestic violence. When the officers were inside the home investigating, the man shot allegedly fired at them, and they returned fire while retreating. The man then barricaded himself inside.

A SWAT team was called when the man refused demands to come out and surrender. Police later entered the home and found the man dead inside.

The officers involved have been placed on paid administrative leave pending review of the incident.
