VIDEO: Utah Officer Shoots Suspect Who Brandished Fake Gun with Laser

Newly released body camera video shows a West Jordan, Utah, police officer shooting a man who was grabbing a fake gun made of a bent piece of metal with taped-on laser pointer.

"We cannot wait until somebody actually shoots us," said West Jordan Police Chief Doug Diamond during a Friday news conference. "By then it’s too late."

Internal affairs investigators last week cleared Officer Ian Adams of any policy violations in the July 10 shooting of 32-year-old Timothy James Peterson.
