A man shot in May during a confrontation with police in the lobby of the West Valley City Police Department has been indicted by a federal grand jury on a child pornography charge.
James Ramsey Kammeyer Jr., 39, faces one count of knowingly receiving and distributing child pornography between March 1 and March 30, according to the indictment filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court.
Kammeyer, a registered sex offender, walked into the city's police building on April 29 and approached a civilian clerk and uniformed officer, who were seated behind protective glass at the front desk, and asked to speak with a detective. As the detective opened a door to the lobby to meet with Kammeyer, he noticed him fidgeting with something and asked Kammeyer to take his hands out of his pockets. Kammeyer then pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the detective, who closed the door and yelled "gun." The detective radioed for help as he commanded Kammeyer to drop the weapon. Instead, Kammeyer pointed the gun at the receptionist.
