MAGNA, Utah (AP) - Authorities say a 39-year-old man is dead after he was fatally shot by police in Magna on Saturday.

Salt Lake County Sheriff Jim Winder says officers were called to the Sunset Vista trailer park around 7:30 p.m. after reports of a man who appeared be threatening suicide.

Winder says an officer found Luis Quintana trying to hurt himself with a knife.

He says Quintana then moved toward the officer with the knife and ignored the officer’s orders to stop.

The officer shot Quintana at least four times, killing the man.

Authorities have not identified the officer involved.

The Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office is reviewing the shooting as it does with every police shooting.
