South Salt Lake • Police fatally shot a man near a South Salt Lake 7-Eleven Monday night.
A 911 call came in at about 7 p.m. near the 7-Eleven at 2102 S. State Street reporting a man waving a gun. Three Salt Lake City police officers responded. They saw three men exit the convenience store, and one man matched the description of the armed man, said South Salt Lake Sgt. Darin Sweetin. Officers asked the men to show their hands. The man who matched the description became belligerent, and he was subsequently shot about 10 to 15 minutes after the initial 911 call.
It was unclear how many shots were fired or which officers did the shooting. All three have been placed on administrative leave. South Salt Lake is investigating the shooting.
