Prosecutors have charged a West Valley City man after police say he fired off shots and threatened to kill them during a standoff.
Wayne Connell Parry, 43, was charged Thursday with eight counts of felony discharge of a firearm, four counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a restricted person, which are also felonies, in 3rd District Court. He was also charged with four counts of violation of a protective order, which are misdemeanors.
A woman who lived with Parry obtained a protective order against him, and on Dec. 20 called for police to make sure he wasn't at their home before she went in. The officer tried the door, but Parry slammed it shut and told the officer to stay out, or he would kill him, according to the charges.
