HOOPER -- Police on Tuesday morning shot and killed Cody Allen White, 25, of Ogden, who, they say, ran from officers, then pulled a gun and threatened them.
The shooting occurred in a field in rural unincorporated Davis County, just over the Weber County line near 6500 West.
The incident began in Weber County around 8 a.m.
Weber County Sheriff's Lt. Mark Lowther said police were called after a white 2009 Ford F-350 diesel truck was stolen from a home near 6500 W. 900 South in Ogden.
"The truck had been left idling in the driveway to warm up," Lowther said. "We found another vehicle abandoned in the area that was stolen last week."
Lowther said it appears the man had been driving the abandoned vehicle but decided to switch to the truck left running in the driveway.
Weber sheriff's officers put out an attempt to locate on the stolen vehicle, asking all officers in the county to look for the stolen truck.
When the truck was spotted in Ogden, officers conducted a short chase but were unable to stop it, Lowther said.
"The vehicle was then spotted in Riverdale by Riverdale police," Lowther said. "Another pursuit initiated, and he took some pretty drastic evasive maneuvers."
He was able to lose officers there as well. The truck was spotted again in West Haven, traveling on 4800 South. The deputy who spotted the man just followed the vehicle and did not initiate a chase.
The man then crossed into Davis County, where another pursuit began.
Officers with Weber and Davis sheriff's offices, as well as with Clinton, pursued the man, who was traveling west on 2425 North.
Davis County Sheriff's Sgt. Susan Poulsen said the officers followed the man for about a mile on the road until he crashed his vehicle in a field.
The man then jumped out of the truck and tried to run away from the three officers who were pursuing him. When the officers followed, he pulled a gun, she said.
"The suspect displayed a gun and pointed it at the officers," Poulsen said.
She said more than one officer fired, although it is unclear how many shots were fired. At least one shot hit the man in the stomach.
The man died at the scene.
As of 6 p.m., police were still unsure which officers fired which shots.
Several agencies responded to the scene to assist with the investigation, including the Davis County Attorney's Office, which investigates all officer-involved shootings within its jurisdiction.
The investigation is ongoing, said Lt. Brad Wilcox.
It is an infraction to leave an idling car unattended in Utah.
Officers make a special effort to enforce the law during the winter -- when people are more likely to leave their cars idling to warm them up -- as a means to prevent vehicle theft, said Ogden Police Lt. Eric Young.
A Cody Allen White with the birth date of April 17, 1985, had four felony cases out of 2nd District Court in Farmington, according to the court website. White pleaded guilty in 2004 to third-degree felony illegal possession of a controlled substance.
