WEST HAVEN — Four schools were placed under temporary lockout after a detective saw a man carrying a firearm in the area.
The Weber County Sheriff’s Office received a call from another police agency around 12 p.m. alerting them to a man with a gun, according to Sgt. Lane Findlay. The detective reported seeing a man carrying a gun case with a shotgun inside near 5000 West and 5900 South, Findlay said.
