SALT LAKE CITY -- The Salt Lake County district attorney says a Murray police officer who shot and wounded a man suspected of killing his girlfriend was legally justified.
A report issued Tuesday by the District Attorney's Office says an investigation has shown that officer David Stallings was justified when he shot 31-year-old Ryan Robinson, who was armed with a gun.
Robinson is accused of killing 25-year-old Shantelle Reid on April 9 in the home the couple shared with his parents in a suburb south of Salt Lake City.
The report says Stallings arrived at the house, responding to reports of a shooting. He found Robinson outside with a gun.
Stallings shot Robinson in the abdomen after he refused to drop his weapon.
Robinson is being held on murder and aggravated assault charges.
