SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City police have released body cam footage of an officer-involved shooting earlier this month.
On Monday, February 10th, officers were called to an apartment complex at 125 S. 300 E. They say they were unsure what the call was about but believed it to be a domestic dispute.
Police say that an officer spotted a man and woman through a ground-level window and jumped into action, kicking out a window and ordering the male suspect to drop the gun he was holding.
There was an exchange of gunfire and one SLCPD officer was hit in the leg.
