OGDEN, Utah - Kenneth Hammond said tonight he does not feel like a hero, and was only doing what any other off-duty officer would do.

What the Ogden police officer did was to help to stop 18-year-old Sulejman Talovic, who opened fire with a shotgun at Trolley Square on Monday, killing five people and wounding four.

"I was just the one that was there," he said at a news conference tonight at the Ogden police station.
