HOLLADAY — A 39-year-old man remained in critical condition Sunday after being shot by police.

About 12:15 p.m. Saturday, Unified police officers were notified of a man who was possibly armed and suicidal in the Millcreek area. The man was found a short time later, about 12:40 p.m., on the top level of a three-story parking structure in Holladay,

Unified police attempted to negotiate with the armed man for about 30-minutes before something happened and shots were fired at 1:13 p.m., according to police. It was not known Sunday what prompted police to shoot or if the man fired his weapon.

The man’s name has not been released. No officers were injured.

The incident was the second officer-involved shooting in Utah in 24 hours.

A man was shot and killed by police in Clinton about 2 a.m. Saturday after the suspect allegedly fired on officers. A police K-9 named “Mik” was shot in the face and underwent surgery but was expected to make a full recovery, according to Roy police.

It was unknown Sunday how many officers fired their weapons, or whether they were all from the Roy Police Department. The deceased suspect’s name and age were not released. Roy police stated they expected to release more information on Monday.

The shooting was also the second in four days for Unified police. On Tuesday, Shane Gwynn, 30, was shot and killed after police say he pointed at gun at an officer who was charing after him near 5400 South and 5400 West in Kearns
