HARRISVILLE — Police shot a knife-waving man during a domestic disturbance call Saturday morning, the Harrisville Police Department said in a press release.
The man, whose name was not released, was shot multiple times and was hospitalized in critical condition, the release said.
Officers from the Harrisville, Pleasant View and North Ogden police departments were dispatched to an apartment complex at 2510 N. Charleston Ave. after a report of a domestic disturbance. The release said officers were confronted by a man wielding a knife in each hand.
The man advanced on the officers despite commands to stop, according to the report. Officers shot him with a Taser, which was ineffective, then they shot him.
North View Fire Department paramedics took the man to McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden.
The Weber County Attorney’s Office will investigate whether the use of force was justified, the release said.
Officers involved have been put on administrative leave, standard practice after a police shooting.
The report said there is a history of domestic abuse calls to the apartment involved Saturday, according to the release.
It was not known what led to the incident; what time it happened; whether others were present; and whether anyone else, including the officers, was injured.
Harrisville police did not return calls about the shooting. A Weber County dispatcher speaking for the department referred inquiries to a Facebook press release.
At the apartment complex, yellow police tape sealed off a large area around a crime scene investigation van. A Harrisville officer there also referred to the press release.
