SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 9, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — Salt Lake City police are on the scene of a fatal officer-involved shooting near 816 N. Sir Philip Drive in Salt Lake City.

According to SLCPD officers, the male suspect was shot at least three times — once in the chest and twice in the back — at about 8:08 p.m.

He was taken by ground ambulance to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, where he was pronounced dead a short while later.
