Drug bust turns deadly in Utah

OGDEN, Utah — When SWAT officers dressed in black shattered windows at his house in the middle of the night, William Louis Florez grabbed a handgun, yelling at them to get away.

Florez pointed the gun at an officer outside a bedroom window, and the officer fired. He then turned and lowered the gun toward an officer outside a front window. That officer fired four quick shots.

Florez fell backward onto the ground, his eyes still open and blood pooling behind his neck.
