WEST JORDAN, Utah, July 23, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — West Jordan residents are being urged to avoid the area of 6900 South Decora Way after a “shots fired” incident Friday morning.

West Jordan police tweeted at noon: “West Jordan Police are investigating a report of shots fired in the area of 6900 South Decora Way. Suspect in custody. No injuries reported. Investigation ongoing.”

Initial reports from the scene indicate officers heard shots and found windows had been shot out at a residence.

Outside agencies responded to the scene and officials held containment, as the suspect was still inside the residence.

An individual then came to the front door and was taken into custody without incident.

Police are still holding containment lines while a thorough search of the residence was being conducted.

Gephardt Daily captured photos on scene of the alleged suspect as he arrested and then attended to by medical personnel.

Officers on scene reported finding what appeared to be bullet holes in at least one nearby home.

We will have more on this developing story as information is made available.
