WEST VALLEY CITY Three police officers who shot a man in the arm after he fired at police were justified in their actions, the Salt Lake County District Attorney's Office said Tuesday.
On May 12, Randy Fetch Jeffs fired at police from an upstairs window of his home, near 6500 West and 3820 South, as officers were responding to a domestic dispute. Jeffs was shot in the arm when the three officers returned fire.
Tuesday, the district attorney said officers Terry Cox, Todd Zahlman and Robert Brinton acted lawfully in shooting Jeffs.
Jeffs was treated at University Hospital. He faces four counts of attempted aggravated murder, a first-degree felony, along with counts of domestic violence in the presence of a child, reckless endangerment and interfering with an arrest.
