KEARNS — The Unified Police Department says that one man is in critical condition after a home invasion overnight in Kearns.

A man started wandering around a Kearns neighborhood last night before residents of a house at 5973 S Stone Flower Way said he entered without permission. Police say the man met violent resistance from the people inside.

The fight continued outside the home, and police say the man was in critical condition when they arrived on the scene. He was then taken into custody and transported to a nearby hospital.

Police say that no weapons were involved, though they're still trying to figure out what exactly happened.

"Our violent crimes unit is responding now with our forensics unit as well, and they're going to do a thorough investigation, talk to the witnesses and the people involved and figure out what happened and determine where they go from here," Unified Police Lt. Nate Lord told KSL-TV.

At this time, the suspect who entered the home hasn't been identified and is still under investigation, police said, noting that there is no threat to the public.
