Deputies respond to reports of suicidal man with firearms

Posted: Updated:
SUMMIT COUNTY -

The Summit County Sheriff's Office responded to a condo complex on reports of a suicidal man with multiple firearms Friday.

The sheriff's office responded to the Wildflower condominium complex at 306 Gulch Road a little after 7 p.m. Friday. Deputies said a 36-year old suicidal man with multiple firearms was reported, so a reverse 911 message was sent to nearby residents to shelter in place.

Deputies secured the area and made contact with the man through a negotiator and the man's girlfriend via text. The situation calmed down by midnight, and after not hearing from the man for a long period of time deputies stayed on scene throughout the night, according to the sheriff's office.

Once the situation was stabilized, a message was mistakenly to sent to the public, around 3,500 phone numbers, that people no longer needed to shelter in place, the sheriff's office said. Many of the phone numbers did not receive the initial 911 message, as it was only intended for nearby residents.

Deputies say there is no public safety concern, the situation remains under investigation.
