UTAH COUNTY, Utah — The Utah County Sheriff's Office is investigating an officer-involved shooting that left a man dead Wednesday in the Eagle Mountain area.

According to the sheriff's office, at approximately 11:15 a.m., a man claimed to have shot himself in the leg in Manning Canyon, leading to a response by deputies to the remote part of the county.

When deputies responded to the scene, the man allegedly pointed a weapon at the officers. The suspect, identified as 33-year-old Tyler James McCleve from Pleasant Grove, refused orders to lower his weapon, at which point the deputies fired their guns.

The deputies administered CPR to McCleve until first responders arrived, but the man later died at the scene.

An Officer Involved Critical Incident Team has been called to the scene as the investigation gets underway.

The sheriff's office said the Manning Canyon area is one where ATV, outdoor activities and hunting take place.
