BOUNTIFUL – Seven Bountiful schools were placed on lockout earlier today, April 10, after police received reports that a suicidal man with a gun was in the area. All schools have since been released.

Though the lockouts were a precautionary measure initiated by the Bountiful Police Department, the situation originated in Woods Cross. Bountiful police continued to monitor the search, and all but one of the seven schools were released by 3 p.m. The schools affected were Bountiful Elementary School, Bountiful High School, Mueller Park Jr. High, Valley View Elementary School, Millcreek Jr. High, St. Olaf School and Oak Hills Elementary. 

Greg Butler, the Woods Cross police chief, stated on Twitter at approximately 3:30 p.m. that the subject had “been located and was fine.” Bountiful Elementary, the last school still under lockout, was released at that time.

Butler also stated on Twitter that the Woods Cross Police Department would not release an official statement any further details on the matter, since it was a mental health issue protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
