UPD officer confronts, shoots armed Taylorsville man
A Unified Police officer shot an armed man in Taylorsville late Friday morning.
UPD Sgt. Ken Hansen said the officer was responding to 911 calls reporting gunshots and "a man with a gun" outside the residence at 5514 S. Ridgecrest (3400 West).
At 10:26 a.m., immediately after the officer spotted the man and confronted him, gunfire erupted. The officer was unhurt, but the suspect was shot multiple times.
The suspect, identified as 31-year-old Jared Roskelley, was listed in serious condition at Murray's Intermountain Medical Center. His injuries were not believed life-threatening.
Hansen said it was not immediately clear whether Roskelley also fired at the officer during the confrontation.
