SOUTH OGDEN (ABC4 News) – A man is dead after an officer-involved shooting in South Ogden early Friday morning.
He has been identified as Frederick Jeremy Atkin of Ogden.
According to police, the shooting happened in the area of 4000 South and Wall avenue.
Exclusive video obtained by ABC4 News from a nearby business shows officers from South Ogden, Ogden and Weber County responded.
In the blurry video, you can see police rushing to the scene moments after gunfire erupted between police and Atkin.
Atkin was taken to the hospital where he later died.
According to the Weber County Attorney, the police officer was placed on paid administrative leave, pending completion of the Weber County Critical Incident Task Force’s investigation.
It all started in Ogden when officers say they tried to pull Atkin over for a suspected DUI.
Atkin did not pull over for officers and a pursuit was initiated by the South Ogden police.
At some point during the pursuit, officers spiked Atkin’s tires.
Officers then approached the car and that’s when the officer-involved shooting took place.
We do not know who fired first or if Atkin was armed.
The Weber County Attorneys office says no other information will be provided at this time.
A look at court records shows Atkins was convicted of forcible sex abuse, domestic violence in the presence of a child and aggravated kidnapping in 2004.
According to the Utah prison inmate search, Atkin was out on parole.
Updates will be posted when more information becomes available.
