LAYTON, Utah, Oct. 9, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A “violent fugitive” wanted on multiple felony warrants, who was shot by U.S. Marshals officers outside the Layton Hills Mall on Tuesday afternoon, has died.
The U.S. Marshal Service Violent Fugitive Strike Team was tracking fugitive Zackary Aldrige Hall, 28, said a news release from the Marshals Service Wednesday.
Hall, whose last known residence was in West Jordan, was staying in temporary housing in Clearfield, and was wanted for an aggravated robbery out of the 3rd District Court in Salt Lake City. Hall was located at the Layton Hills Mall, the news release said.
“In order to protect the public, officers waited to attempt to apprehend Hall until Hall exited the mall,” the news release said. “When officers approached, Hall refused to comply with their orders and ran toward his vehicle. Hall entered his car, tried to escape, and began using his vehicle as a weapon and starting ramming his vehicle into police vehicles.”
In order to stop the threat, an officer fired into the car striking Hall, the news release said.
“Hall then exited the vehicle, and officers quickly removed a firearm that was located on his person,” the news release said. “Officers immediately began treating Hall for his injuries.”
Hall was taken to Davis Hospital and later succumbed to his injuries. The investigation is being handled by the Davis County Critical Incident Protocol Team.
No officers were shot in the incident.
Layton Police said in a news release that “Layton PD was not involved in the shooting, but we are assisting the Davis County Critical Incident Protocol Team with the investigation and processing the scene.”
