Police on Monday identified the man an officer shot and killed outside the Oquirrh Mountain LDS Temple on Christmas Day.
Daniel M. Pogue, 54, was carrying a shotgun and pointing it at people in the area, said Lt. Dan Starks of the South Jordan Police Department. He also was carrying a machete and chopping at the fence surrounding the building.
Pogue had two other shotguns, one rifle, three swords and a machete in his vehicle, which was parked near the temple. When police arrived, Pogue grabbed a shotgun from his car and hid behind the vehicle. He disregarded police commands, and ran in the direction of bystanders. Officers were concerned for the safety of the bystanders, and fired a single bullet at Pogue, Starks said. Pogue was pronounced dead at the scene.
