OGDEN, Utah (AP) — Gunfire erupted as anti-drug police served a search warrant in an Ogden neighborhood, fatally wounding one officer and injuring five other police and a suspect, authorities said.
The shots rang out before 9 p.m. Wednesday as police converged at a residence on Jackson Avenue, police spokesman Lt. Tony Fox said.
The six officers were hospitalized along with a suspect, Fox told The Associated Press.
Ogden police said in a statement early Thursday that agent Jared Francom died from his wounds following Wednesday night's drug-related shooting.
Five police officers from multiple agencies remain hospitalized with serious to critical injuries. No more information on their conditions was released.
