(KUTV) The Davis County Sheriff's Office responded to a 911 call from a woman claiming a man was waving a gun in her West Point neighborhood.
"She believed she heard him say something about shooting. Then she says he went back into the home and she heard a couple of pops," Davis County Sheriff's Lt. Dave Brener said.
Police arrived on the scene--but no one involved was responding. Officers say the homeowner, where the alleged assault took place, couldn't be reached and those inside refused to come to the door.
"Some yelling and commotion [was heard]. So we responded to what we thought could have been an assault." Lt. Brener said. "It appeared to be a barricaded situation. We didn't know if we still had armed individuals in the house."
Deputies believed people were trapped inside the house.
A SWAT team responded and secured the area. Eventually, five people came out of home, no injuries were reported, but police say an illegal substance was found in the home, along with a gun. Two people were arrested, including the homeowner.
Authorities say three of the five people that came out of the home were just visiting, and two of them were brother and sister.

Dive Team Searching For Dinosaur Fossil in Colorado River
(KUTV) The Grand County Sheriff's Office revealed "investigators have identified a suspect" in a dinosaur track taken from land near Moab more than two weeks ago; and divers have now gone into murky water to try to find the fossil.
"Currently, a dive team from the Department of Public Safety is… searching the area of the Colorado River located at the Dewey Bridge on SR 128, where the fossil is believed to have been dumped," said the sheriff's office. Officials have not released the suspect's name, and no charges have yet been filed.
Still, investigators are said to be speaking about the case with the U.S. Attorney's Office in Salt Lake.
"The Bureau of Land Management has been working with Grand County, and so the BLM has consulted with attorneys in our office as this began to unfold," said Melodie Rydalch, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney. "If the facts warrant it, we will be filing charges."
The BLM reported the "theft" more than two weeks ago---and the sheriff's office said the track was removed from the Sand Flats area.
"The dinosaur track, preserved in Navajo Sandstone, dates to the Jurassic Period and is estimated to be 190 million years old," said a BLM release. "When fossils like these are taken, we lose irreplaceable scientific and educational opportunities to explore some of the natural history that makes Utah's public lands so special."
Even if divers find what they're looking for, what might be the condition of the remains?
An earlier report said BLM officials thought someone chiseled the track out of the sandstone, and carried it away. Was it further broken after it was taken? What might be the effect of being underwater for extended time?
The BLM said a 2009 federal law, known as the Paleontological Resources Preservation Act, protects dinosaur tracks and bones of the prehistoric creatures. "Vandalism and theft of these resources can result in criminal and civil penalties, including fines and potential jail time."
(KUTV) The Utah Highway Patrol reports a roll over crash occurred on Interstate-15 near Parowan Friday afternoon. A southbound vehicle blew a tire and the vehicle rolled off the highway, according to a UHP press release.
The 36-year-old male driver was uninjured in the crash, but his wife was pinned inside the Ford Expedition and she had to be freed by the fire department.
The woman sustained some moderate injuries in the crash, according to the release. Three children were also in the car and they were treated and released from a local hospital in Cedar City.
Troopers say all of the vehicle occupants were wearing seat belts, which they say prevented more serious injuries from happening.
(KUTV) Authorities have identified the man killed in an avalanche in Summit County on Friday.
