OGDEN, Utah, Oct. 27, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — An Ogden man is in custody after police say he fired multiple shots from a handgun, with at least one bullet hitting a neighbor’s residence.

Police dispatchers got a shots-fired call at 7:48 p.m. Wednesday, according to a news release from the Ogden Police Department. Officers responded to a residence on the 400 North block of Gramercy Avenue.

Officers evacuated the other people in the home, and tried to communicate with the alleged shooter, who would not respond. Ogden Metro SWAT team was brought in to try and negotiate a surrender, according to the news release.

After negotiations failed, SWAT fired tear gas into the home, and the suspect surrendered without further incident.

Scott Flinn, 29, was taken into custody at 11:01 p.m. and booked into the Weber County Jail on 10 counts of 3rd degree felony discharge of a firearm and intoxication. According to witness testimony, Flinn was arguing with roommates prior to the incident.
