Police ID Gunman Killed After Wounding Two Salt Lake City Officers

March 28, 2014  | 

A wanted man is dead and two police officers hospitalized with gunshot wounds after an apparent traffic stop in downtown Salt Lake City erupted into an early Friday morning firefight, reports the Salt Lake City Tribune.

The man killed was identified as 34-year-old Christopher Leo Knight, from Lakeport, Calif., who was wanted by California authorities on a drug-possession warrant.

"[The two officers] are stable and doing OK," Heiden said early Friday. "One of them was actually able to radio in what had happened after being shot."

Police Chief Chris Burbank later identified the officers as Mo Tafisi and Dan Tueller.

Way to rid the streets of one more piece of trash SLCPD. I hope Officer Tafisi and Officer Tueller a speedy recovery. To all my brothers and sisters in blue, stay vigilant, but most of all stay safe.

Way to stay in the fight guys. You did the blue line proud. No one wants to take life but when they try to take you out the only alternative is to neutralize the threat. Speedy recovery officers. Take care and stay safe out there.
