SALT LAKE CITY — In recent years, anger has reached a boiling point over police shootings both in Utah and across the country.

FOX 13’s content-sharing partners at The Salt Lake Tribune worked with PBS Frontline to document the process of investigating what may be behind the spike in use of deadly force.

Their new documentary called "Shots Fired" takes a look at deadly police shooting in the Salt Lake area as seen from a few different perspectives — such as reporters, police officers, victims, activists and state leaders who called for police reform.

The film includes the work of some Tribune reporters, including Jessica Miller.

FOX 13 spoke with Miller about the investigation. Hear what she and others had to say in the video above.

The full documentary can be watched below or on the PBS Frontline website. Summaries and links to more in-depth articles about the shootings in question are also on the Tribune's website.
