SOUTH JORDAN, Utah (AP) - Police officers were able to reach a peaceful resolution with a South Jordan man holding a high-powered rifle who allegedly threatened to shoot officers.

The Deseret News reports (https://bit.ly/1FtAHxK ) that just after midnight Sunday police responded to a 911 call from a woman saying her husband was drunk and had become suicidal during a family fight.

South Jordan police officer Sam Winkler says officers arrived at the house where 44-year-old Bryan Lefevre walked onto the front porch holding a rifle and announced he was targeting officers.

Winkler says police had several opportunities to fire at the man but showed great restraint.

The man eventually went inside and came back out and surrendered.

He was arrested for investigation of aggravated domestic assault and discharging a firearm within city limits.
