LAYTON, Utah – Police, including SWAT, responded to a home in Layton early Tuesday, where they found the man they were looking for deceased inside.
Authorities identified the man as 43-year-old Jarret Lichtenstein.
Emergency dispatchers received a 911 call about 2:20 a.m. and officers responded to a residential address near 1056 N. 3450 West, dispatchers confirmed.
Officials said it stemmed from a domestic dispute that started at about 1:30 a.m. in Morgan County. Lichtenstein went to a home in Morgan County where he kicked in the door and reportedly used a gun to threaten the woman there, identified as his ex-girlfriend.
He left the Morgan County residence, and law enforcement was able to ping his cell phone to the home in Layton. When police arrived at the location, they found his vehicle in the driveway.
Police attempted to make contact with Lichtenstein by phone and at his door when they heard a gun shot, Layton Police Lt. Travis Lyman said. Offers then called in SWAT.
At approximately 6:30 a.m., during a live segment on KSL TV, an explosion could be heard. This was followed by short popping sounds later on. An officer on scene told KSL TV the noises were possibly from SWAT firing tear gas and possibly shooting rubber bullets.
One individual, identified as Lichtenstein’s son, was at home asleep and reportedly unaware of what was going on. He exited the home voluntarily at approximately 6:45 a.m.
Police continued to call out for Lichtenstein. When they entered the home, they found him deceased from what appeared to be a self-inflicted injury.
Authorities encouraged the public to reach out for help if there’s a domestic situation before a tragedy can occur.
