Man hears gunshots near condominiums, tells the police he is armed

A man called the Park City Police Department on Saturday, Sept. 20, telling the police he heard two loud sounds at 5:24 p.m. that seemed to him to be gunshots.

The man was on the 1100 block of Deer Valley Drive at the time, and the police were told the sounds came from the north side of some nearby condominiums.

The person who called the police indicated he was armed. Public police logs do not provide details, however, and it is unclear whether it was determined whether the sounds were gunshots.
