GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Assault with a deadly weapon and felony menacing is the reason two SWAT teams were needed to get a Grand Junction man out of his father’s house.

Despite having a restraining order, Scott Lormans’ father let him back in his home. Once in the house, Lorman is alleged to have threatened to kill his father and father’s wife, going as far as throwing a knife at the back of his father’s head.

Lorman’s father and his wife evacuated the home but forgot about two loaded 9mm handguns inside.

This all started January 4th on Saddle Rock Drive in Grand Junction.

When Lorman refused to leave the home, his father provided live video inside the house to law enforcement on scene through their home security camera.

The Mesa County Combined SWAT Team took over the scene and tried to get Lorman out verbally. When this failed flashbangs and gas were deployed into the home, but this also failed to get Lorman out of the house.

The SWAT team had to enter and clear the home where they located Lorman hiding inside a closet.

Lorman is still facing open charges and will be in court Tuesday.
