The district attorney for Salt Lake County declined to file criminal charges against a Utah police officer who said, "You're about to die, my friend," seconds before fatally shooting a man.

Gill said under the current state law, Longman's use of force was justified, but he called video of the shooting "disturbing.".

When an officer tried to take the shoe, Breinholt twisted in his seat and grabbed Atkin's holstered weapon, according to the district attorney. »
