Three officers are on leave pending an investigation.
A man was fatally shot by police in Saratoga Springs overnight after police said he was trying to flee officers and attempted to break into a home with a gun.
The incident began around 11:00 p.m. Monday when Lehi police officers attempted to stop a 50-year-old man near the Lehi Roller Mills on Main Street.
The man drove away from officers, and although deputies from the Utah County Sheriff’s Office spiked the car with spikes, the pursuit was called off, officials told FOX 13 News.
Later that night, officers found the man near Smith’s Marketplace in Saratoga Springs, police said. He attempted to ram a police car before driving away from the scene, officials said.
The man walked to a home near 792 N. Canteberry Ct. and at one point, police officers shot and killed the suspect, officials reported.
