Ogden police: Officer fatally shoots burglary suspect

July 31, 2019

ROY, Utah (AP) — The Ogden Police Department says one of its officers fatally shot a suspect while assisting police in Roy as they responded to a call about a burglary in progress at a medical clinic early Wednesday morning.

Ogden police said in a statement that an Ogden officer who had deployed a police dog into the building was searching for the suspect when the suspect attacked officers “with a weapon at close range.”

According to the statement, police entered the building because a cleaner who called to report the burglary in progress was barricaded in a room.

The statement didn’t specify the type of weapon allegedly wielded by the suspect, whose identity was not released.
