Join Tribune reporters as they talk about police shootings and race

In partnership with Frontline, The Salt Lake Tribune breaks down Utah police shootings by race and ethnicities.

(Screenshot via Salt Lake City Police Department) Salt Lake City police shot and killed 34-year-old Andrew Preece on July 25, 2020, after responding to a call that two men had been fighting outside a Smith's at 455 S. 500 East.

Over the past year, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Jessica Miller and Paighten Harkins have partnered with FRONTLINE to examine police shootings in Utah. Their coverage has included a tabulation of police shootings in 2020, officers who have shot their guns multiple times and how police handle mental health crisis. The next part of the series look at the race and ethnicity of the people police shot at, as well as potential solutions to lower the number of police shootings.

Join The Salt Lake Tribune as Miller and Harkins talk about their research and what it means for Utah. This live Zoom event will be at noon on Sept. 24.
