District Attorney Sim Gill says Utah police officers were legally justified in firing more than 30 times and killing an armed man as he ran away. The case has become a rallying point for protesters in the state amid a national wave of dissent against police brutality. Gill said 22-year-old Bernardo Palacios-Carbajal was shot as he ran from Salt Lake City police officers who were investigating a gun-threat call and had yelled for him to drop a gun. The family of a Utah man who was killed and shot at more than 30 times as he ran from police filed a lawsuit against the Salt Lake City police department Friday, Sept. 25, 2020.
