The Salt Lake Tribune
WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah β€” The man who was shot and killed by police outside a 7-Eleven on Wednesday fired a handgun at officers during the confrontation, police said.

The man, whose identity is known but was not being released pending notification of relatives, was shot about 10 a.m. after he was confronted by two police officers investigating why he had been sitting in his car in a handicapped parking space all morning.

Police Lt. Steve Sandquist would not say whether both officers fired or whether the man was the first to open fire.
