Armed suspect shot by officers in West Haven
WEST HAVEN, Utah (AP) — Authorities in West Haven say a man was shot by police after he pulled out a gun during a domestic violence call.
Weber County sheriff’s officials say neighbors first called 911 around 11:45 p.m. Sunday after hearing gunfire.
Sheriff’s Lt. Matt Jensen says the call involved a dispute between a girlfriend and boyfriend.
When deputies got there, a male suspect had just left the home on foot.
Jensen says that’s when the suspect took out a firearm. Officers then shot him several times.
The suspect, who has not been identified, was taken to a hospital and underwent surgery.
His condition was not immediately known Monday.
The girlfriend was unharmed.
