SYRACUSE — A man who shot at officers last week and was then fired upon in return has died from his injuries, police confirmed Monday.
Thomas Hamby, 49, died Sunday, said Syracuse police officer Erin Behm. But she would not provide details about how many times he was shot or where he was hit. Hamby was shot Thursday night as officers responded to a domestic dispute at 2964 W. 2125 South.
One Syracuse police officer and two Davis County sheriff's deputies involved in the shooting remained on paid administrative leave Monday.Comment on this story
The confrontation between Hamby and officers occurred after police said a woman went to the Syracuse Fire Department on Thursday asking for help because her boyfriend "was acting strangely" and had "access to firearms." After being told to contact the police, the woman returned home from the fire department, investigators said.
As officers set up a perimeter around the home, Hamby came outside and fired at officers, according to police.
A search of state court records indicates that Hamby has no criminal history in Utah.
The shooting is the second officer-involved shooting fatality in the state so far this year, both of which occurred Thursday. In Salt Lake City, an officer shot and killed an Avenues man who attacked him with a shovel.
