WEST VALLEY CITY -- The West Valley City Police Department reopened its lobby a day after police shot a man who pulled out a gun and pointed it at an officer and records clerk.

Police say 39-year-old James Ramsey Kammeyer was released from the hospital Monday afternoon and has been booked into jail on suspicion of attempted homicide, threat of terrorism, aggravated assault and possession of a weapon by a prohibited user.

Kammeyer was shot twice in the arm. No one else was hurt.

West Valley City Police Sgt. Jason Hauer said Tuesday that investigators are still working to determine why Kammeyer came into the police station.

Hauer did not have information about how many shots were fired, whether Kammeyer fired his gun or how he obtained the gun.
