FARMINGTON, Utah (ABC4) — One person has been hospitalized after an officer-involved shooting outside a Farmington post office Wednesday afternoon.
Farmington Police Chief Eric Johnsen said an officer conducted a traffic stop in the parking lot of the United States Postal Service office around 3:20 p.m. due to the vehicle not having a license plate. There was reportedly one person inside the blue sedan.
Johnsen said the officer requested more assistance over the radio, leading to an additional four officers arriving at the scene. A short while later, an officer reportedly called out over the radio that shots have been fired.
The driver has been transported to a local hospital with gunshot injuries. His condition remains unknown, Johnsen said.
All five officers have been put on administrative leave as per the officer-involved critical incident protocol.
