LAYTON, Utah (AP) - Police say officers investigating a drive-by shooting in northern Utah negotiated the release of two teenagers held in a home against their will.

Layton police say the shots were fired about 10 p.m. and went into a home where two small children had been playing, though the children weren’t injured.

Sgt. Riley Richins says police found that two 16-year-old boys at a home next door wanted to talk with officers about the shots, but the man who lived there was holding them at gunpoint and wouldn’t let them leave.

Police say officers negotiated with the man holding the teens until they were released about midnight.

The Standard-Examiner reports (https://bit.ly/1J3uLK3) the 22-year-old man was taken in for questioning and police found evidence of drugs in the home.
