Both videos start with 30-seconds of no audio. This is not a malfunction. The “Axon 3” body-worn cameras used by the SLCPD have a continuous 30-second video-only buffer. When a recording is activated, the buffered video captured directly before the event is saved and attached to the event in permanent memory. This feature is intended to capture the video of an incident just before a recording begins.

Both videos end as the subject falls to the ground. The video is stopped pursuant to City Ordinance 2.10.200 (D) (3) which states “some images from a body-worn camera might be offensive or violate an individual’s privacy and should not be disclosed…These offensive/violative images include…showing the moment an individual deceases or the individual’s body the moment after deceasing…”

DISPATCHED DETAILS: Regarding this incident, officers with the Salt Lake City Police Department were initially dispatched to a Priority 1 – “Shooting Just Occurred” on the northbound Interstate 15 off-ramp that leads to 600 South in downtown.

OFFICER ACTIONS: There are only two body-worn camera videos that captured the actual officer-involved-critical incident. The BWC footage for both officers starts as they are pursuing the subject. The pursuit ended in an industrial area near 220 South Orange Street after the subject crashed the stolen vehicle, rendering it inoperable after becoming high-centered.

After crashing, the subject remained in the vehicle. The involved officers, as they exited their vehicle, immediately began giving verbal commands for the subject to “show me your hands” and “drop the gun.” Instantaneously, shots, in rapid succession, were exchanged between the subject and the two officers.

Upon exiting the driver side of the police car, one officer took cover behind the police car while engaged with the subject.

Upon exiting the front passenger side of the police car, the other officer eventually took cover behind the police car while engaged with the subject. The subject exited the stolen vehicle from the front passenger side. There is a brief pause in the volley of gunshots, which is when one of the officers sees the subject running from the front passenger door of the vehicle and past the trunk in the direction of the officers.

Both officers briefly continue to discharge their service weapons as the subject falls and briefly continue shooting as he is on the ground with the gun in close reach. A tactical approach, with responding and the involved officers, is formulated to approach the subject on the ground.

After clearing the gun from the subject’s immediate reach, emergency life-saving efforts are conducted. Life-saving efforts continued for approximately 15-20 minutes with officers and paramedics.
