SYRACUSE, Utah — A man shot in an officer-involved shooting in Syracuse last week has died, officials confirmed Monday afternoon.
Police have identified the man as 49-year-old Thomas Hamby.
The shooting occurred at 7 p.m. on Thursday in the area of 3000 West and 2100 South when police responded to a man with a gun following a domestic situation.
Erin Behm, Syracuse Police Department, said the domestic situation between a man and his girlfriend resulted in a call to police about a man with a gun. Personnel from Syracuse police and the Davis County Sheriff’s Office responded.
“The call was a man with a gun, the officers arrived and were fired upon immediately,” Behm said. “The officers fired back, and no officers were injured. The suspect was flown by helicopter to a local hospital.”
This is the second fatal officer-involved shooting this year.
The first was earlier on the same day at about 4 p.m. where a man was shot by a Salt Lake City police officer in the Avenues.
Officer body camera footage shows the man attacked the officer with a shovel.
