Another officer, who was shot three times during the incident, was experiencing surgery Sunday evening, according to a reporter from KSL.com .
Unified Police Officer Doug Barney, an 18 -year veteran and a leader of three, was originally listed in critical condition but eventually died from a gunshot wound to the premier. Salt Lake County Sheriff Jim Winder announced the information Sunday evening, ABC4 reported.
Police are sought for a woman who also was involved in the escapade. It is unknown if she is armed.
“We do not know who she is as of hitherto, ” Lt. Lex Bell said earlier on Sunday, according to KSL.com. “I understand she is a grey female with blonde mane, and that’s about all that I have.”
Cops were responding to a traffic accident in Holladay when a mortal, subsequently mentioned as Cory Lee Henderson, and the unidentified girl fled from a Black BMW 3-series sedan. Cops engaged the pair on a hoof and a firefight ensued.
“Ultimately, there was a struggle, ” Bell said.
Henderson was enunciated dead at the panorama, according to FOX1 3. Winder said Henderson fired the shot that struck Barney in the head.
The search continues for the woman.
Our suggestion would be shelter in place, stay inside if you are able to, Bell told KSL.com. I know there may be parties hurtling from church, which is okay, but if they are likely to at all be used to help, try to limit their being outside. Were going to have police canines in the area and helicopters. The more we can eliminate interference by these other beings, and concentrate on the person or persons were go looking for, it prepares it a lot easier.
