MILLCREEK, Utah, Sept. 9, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Two people are in custody after a suspected home invasion Monday morning in Millcreek.

The incident happened at about 7:45 a.m. in the area of 4200 S. Normandie Lane.

“We had a couple of individuals who went to a home with the intent of a robbery,” Sgt. Melody Gray, Unified Police Department, told Gephardt Daily. “A struggle ensued, and somebody had a gun, which, at some point, went off.”

A woman called 911 saying her boyfriend had been injured.

Unified Police officials arrived to find one or more shell casings at the scene, but not the caller or her boyfriend.

Gray said one person had been grazed by a bullet, and a male suspect had been badly beaten.

“When police arrived, the suspects were gone,” she said. “They kept saying they were going to the hospital, but they didn’t show up at a hospital, and were finally found in White City.”

The suspects are now in custody, and most likely facing charges, Gray said. Their names have not yet been released.

Nearby James Moss Elementary was placed on temporary lockdown, which later was lifted.
