STANSBURY PARK, Utah (AP) — Tooele County officials say gunfire that prompted lockdowns at three schools was from a deputy’s suicide.

Sheriff Frank Park says the 37-year-old deputy died Tuesday after the shooting at his home near Stansbury Park Elementary School.

Shots reported around noon led officials to lock down the elementary school as well as Rose Springs Elementary and Stansbury High School. The lockdowns lasted for less than an hour.

The deputy was a married father of six who had worked at the Tooele County Sheriff’s Office for four years.
