WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — Two weeks after a suspect was killed in a fatal standoff with police in Taylosville, officials have released body cam video of the incident.

Police and 20-year-old Anei Gabriel Joker were involved in the standoff on Dec. 1 outside a 7-Eleven at 4100 South and Redwood Road. During the confrontation, Joker was holding a 9-month-old baby in his vehicle.

After Joker released the infant, he began firing at officers, striking two with gunfire. Joker was hit with returning gunfire and later died. The two officers have since fully recovered from the injuries.

In the body camera video released Wednesday, the negotiation to release the baby is seen, along with the fatal shootout that led to Joker's death.
