Fugitive shot by police outside Utah mall dies

A fugitive who was shot and arrested outside the Layton Hills Mall has died from his wound.

According to the U.S. Marshals Service, Zackary Aldrige Hall, 28, was wanted for aggravated robbery and was believed to be armed and dangerous. Hall was tracked to the mall by the USMS Violent Fugitive Strike Team; officers waited until Hall exited the mall “to protect the public.”

But when he was approached by officers at about 3:15 p.m. Tuesday, Hall “refused to comply with their orders” and ran to his car. He started his car and used it “as a weapon … ramming his vehicle into police vehicles."

According to a news release from Matthew D. Harris, U.S. marshall for the District of Utah, “in order to stop the threat, an officer fired into the car, striking Hall.” Authorities said Hall was armed, but officers “quickly removed a firearm that was located on his person” when he got out of his car.

Hall was treated at the scene by officers and transported to Davis Hospital and Medical Center, where he later died.

The shooting is under investigation by the Davis County Critical Incident Protocol Team.

In March, Hall allegedly walked out of a Salt Lake City Macy’s with about $400 worth of items. When an employee tried to stop him, Hall allegedly threatened to shoot the man. Several employees reported seeing Hall carrying a holstered gun.
