WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — Agents with the U.S. Marshals Service shot and killed a 29-year-old man wanted on several warrants out of two separate counties Wednesday night.

According to a news release, the agents were attempting to locate and arrest the suspect in the area of 4200 W. 4100 South. Surveillance directed the agents to a residence in West Valley City. When agents approached the home, they encountered at least four individuals. Those individuals complied with orders from law enforcement and exited the house.

Agents confirmed the suspect was still in the house. Eventually, law enforcement personnel found the individual hiding in a locked closet of a bathroom.

Agents gave the suspect orders to follow. However, he refused to comply, according to the news release. 

The news release states that the suspect eventually brandished a firearm. In response, several agents fired their weapons striking the suspect. 

Life-saving measures were performed on the suspect. However, the news release states that he passed away before medical personnel could arrive.

The suspect, who has not been identified pending family notification, was wanted on firearm and drug offenses out of Millard and Salt Lake counties. 

The West Valley City Police Department’s critical incident protocol team has taken control of the scene and the investigation.
