Police have identified the man as 38-year-old Christopher Roskelley.

The shooting happened near 150 North Harrison Boulevard, just before 5 p.m.

According to Lt. Danielle Croyle, members of the Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force were in the area searching for a suspect related to another case.

"They were conducting an investigation, following up on an investigation," Croyle said.

The investigation stemmed from a shooting on Sept. 4 where a man was shot in a parking lot outside a Rite Aid store, leaving him in critical condition.

On Tuesday, they received a tip providing the whereabouts of a person of interest in the case.

However, when the man arrived to the neighborhood where authorities were searching, the shooting began.

"Shots were fired -- multiple shots were fired," Croyle said.

Roskelley was shot and killed. There were no other injuries reported.

"I thought I heard a couple of shots, I wasn't sure. But then I heard a whole bunch of sirens," said Donna Buchanan, who lives a couple blocks down the street.

The Weber County District Attorney's office is conducting an independent investigation into the shooting, as protocol requires in an officer-involved shooting.
