PROVO — Police returned fire on a suspect in a Provo home when several rounds were shot at them while they attempted to serve a no-knock warrant Monday night.
No one was injured in the shooting that tore through the front door of a house at 454 S. 900 East, police said.
Provo Police Lt. Matt Siufanua said the man inside the house was facing a drug-related warrant. The man was taken into custody for questioning without further incident.
About 10 officers from the Utah County Sheriff's Office and Provo Police Department served the warrant. Some officers reported hearing bullets whiz past their heads, Siufanua said.
A woman in the house at the time of the shooting also was taken into custody for questioning. Siufanua said it has not yet been determined whether the woman lived in the house.
Police said they believe the man pulled the trigger. He could face charges ranging from assault to attempted homicide, Siufanua added.
