A SWAT standoff in Midvale that began with several bangs petered out Saturday night with a whimper.
After several hours barricaded inside his home, Christopher Dougherty, 44, surrender to police at about 11:45 p.m., according to Unified Police Department Lt. Justin Hoyal. Dougherty reportedly surrendered "without incident."
Dougherty began a standoff with police and SWAT officers about 9 p.m. after a 911 caller reported seeing a man firing a rifle into the air near 7600 South and 1000 East in Midvale. When police responded, Dougherty holed up inside his home.
