SALT LAKE CITY — Numerous SWAT team members were seen outside a Salt Lake City home Monday before the incident ended with a man dying due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Due to the police presence, residents were warned to shelter in place and nearby Northwest Middle School was placed on lockdown.

Police responded to the area near Carvallo Drive and 1700 North just before noon after receiving a call about a sexual assault involving a juvenile who was known to the suspect.

Upon arriving at the home, officers learned that a single gunshot had been heard, leading to a SWAT team and crisis negotiators being called to the scene.

Ten minutes after arrival, SWAT officers entered the home and found the man deceased inside.

Police released no other information on the deceased man or the condition of the juvenile who was allegedly assaulted.
