Investigators: Salt Lake officers justified in shooting
SALT LAKE CITY (Deseret News)— The Salt Lake County District Attorney has found 15 law enforcement officers were justified in firing nearly 200 shots at a man following a pursuit prompted by several robberies and random gunfire.
Harold Vincent Robinson died in April 2019 when he was shot after his pickup truck crashed into a business.
District Attorney Sim Gill found that 10 Salt Lake police officers, three Utah Highway Patrol troopers and two other officers were legally justified in their use of deadly force.
Robinson fired about 50 shots during an incident that began with the robbery of two convenience stores and included firing shots at buildings and police cars in Salt Lake City.
