MILLCREEK, Utah (AP) — A Millcreek man accused of shooting his wife and another woman multiple times and then barricading himself in a standoff with police officers is in custody.

Unified police spokesman Lex Bell says 37-year-old Valentin Dulla Santarromana is facing numerous charges including several counts of attempted murder.

According to Bell, officers were called to the home after multiple people reported shots being fired.

They found a woman in the street with gunshot wounds.

A SWAT team then surrounded the area. Officers forced their way inside after hearing more shots being fired.

However, they smelled natural gas and did not fire their weapons.

The suspect's wife, who had several gunshot wounds, is in critical but stable condition.

The other victim, who has not been identified, is listed in extremely critical condition.
