HOLLADAY, Utah -- The brother of a suspect who was killed in an exchange of gunfire with police in Holladay Sunday was arrested after he and the suspect's mother allegedly drove to the scene of the shooting and got into an altercation with police at that scene.

Cory Lee Henderson allegedly shot and killed Unified PD officer Douglas Barney Sunday as Barney responded to a traffic accident. A short time later Henderson allegedly wounded another responding officer, Jon Richey, and was subsequently killed in the exchange of gunfire.

Several hours after Henderson was killed, police stated that a man and woman drove recklessly up to the scene of the shooting in a gold passenger car. According to a statement of probable cause, a woman identified as Henderson's mother jumped out of the vehicle and began physically assaulting police officers.

Jaiden LPolice state Jaiden Snyder, the brother of Henderson and the woman's son, then got out of the vehicle and stated "Hey, that's my F---- mom. Leave her alone."

An officer grabbed Snyder's wrist to control him, and the man allegedly pulled away and punched a police officer, "straight in the face." The officer deployed a Taser without any effect, and Snyder fought with officers as they subdued him and took him into custody.

Once taken into custody, Snyder allegedly head-butted an officer while being taken to a vehicle to be transported.

Snyder faces charges that include assault against a police officer, interference with an arresting officer, failure to stop at command of a law officer, disorderly conduct and threats of violence. He also had previous warrants out for his arrest and has been booked into jail.

The mother was released at the scene after being cited. Her name has not been released.
