The swat team was called thinking there was an “Active Shooter” only to arrive on scene to see Alexander Peace, 26, of Millcreek, shooting at imaginary objects.
Residents in the nearby apartments sheltered in place, and police thought they may have been dealing with an active shooter at one point so they called for backup from multiple agencies.
A SWAT team responded and several roads were closed in the area.
Sgt. Melody Gray of the Unified Police Department said they ultimately determined there was not an active shooter.
He was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail and faces “numerous felony charges.”
