WOODS CROSS -- A man is in jail charged with stabbing his friend.

Woods Cross police say Christopher Bloore started fighting with a man inside the bedroom of a mobile home near 1200 West and 500 South.

Police aren't sure of a motive yet, but say Bloore grabbed a knife and stabbed his friend in the face and stomach several times.

SWAT teams contained the suspect to a trailer and tried to negotiate him out. But negotiations broke down after several hours, so SWAT fired gas canisters inside, forcing the suspect outside, where he was taken into custody.
