Prosecutors: Ogden officers justified in fatal shooting

Ogden • Utah prosecutors say two Ogden police officers had justification to fatally shoot a man who charged at them with a rock last year.

The Standard-Examiner reports that Weber County Attorney Christopher Allred has determined that officers Brandon Sevenski and Tyson Embley acted within their rights when they shot 33-year-old Christopher William Parrish on Nov. 9, 2018.

Authorities say Parrish had fled a traffic stop, but he crashed a short distance away. He then fled on foot, and officers chased after him.

Ogden Police Chief Randy Watt says both officers have returned to work.
