Police investigate the scene of a Monday night shooting.

WEST VALLEY CITY — Police say a man shot and injured by officers fired mulitple shots at officers first before they returned fire, striking the man in the arm.

Police were called to a domestic dispute near 6500 West and 3820 South Monday night, when neighbors said they heard dozens of shots coming from inside the home.

Randy Jeffs, 47, fired at least one shot through the ceiling before police arrived, said West Valley police Capt. Tom McLachlan.

When officers arrived at the house about 10:15 p.m., he immediately opened fire, McLachlan said. Officers returned their own shots.

"He actually hollered out the window that he was shot," and then the man came to the front door, West Valley police Lt. Lamonte Cox said.

Still police said Jeffs refused to go quietly, and after a failed attempt at using a Taser to subdue him, police released a dog on Jeffs.

At least three other people inside the home, including children, escaped without injuries, police said. Bullet holes could been seen in the home's front windows and at least one neighbors car was hit during the gunfire.

Jeffs was under arrested and being watched by officers Tuesday while he was treated at University Hospital. When he is released, McLachlan said he will likely be booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of multiple counts of attempted aggravated homicide of a police officer, among other charges.
