UPDATE: The man involved in Friday’s officer-involved shooting has died.

The Weber County Attorney’s Office has taken over the investigation and says, “early this morning there was a critical incident in South Ogden where a single South Ogden police officer discharged a firearm.  The other involved person is deceased and his name is Frederick Jeremy Atkin of Ogden.  There is no further danger to the public and the next of kin has been notified.  Per protocol, South Ogden has placed the involved officer on paid administrative leave.  An investigation by the Weber County Critical Incident Task Force is ongoing and no other information can be released at this time.”

 

SOUTH OGDEN, Utah — Multiple agencies were on the scene of an officer-involved shooting early Friday morning at the intersection of Wall Avenue and Riverdale Road in South Ogden.

 

Sgt. Dave Labbe said that shooting took place after a lengthy vehicle pursuit initiated by the Ogden City Police just after midnight Friday morning.

“At some point during that pursuit officers spiked the tires of a Ford Mustang and the pursuit continued to this location here at 4000 S Riverdale Rd and Wall Ave. When the pursuit terminated at this point officers approached the vehicle and at that time an officer-involved shooting did occur.”

Sgt. Labbe says the suspect, Frederick Jeremy Atkin of Ogden, was transported to the hospital and later announced deceased.

Labbe says the investigation has been turned over to the Weber County Attorney’s Office and their protocol team. As of 6:30 AM officers staged a mobile command unit that has blocked traffic on Wall Ave as investigators continue to examine the scene.

Police say there are no outstanding suspects.
