Farmington, UT – The Farmington Police Department has released body camera footage of the shooting death of Chase Allan, a 27-year-old man who was killed by officers on May 23, 2021. The video was released after the Davis County Attorney’s Office determined that the use of deadly force was justified.
The footage shows officers responding to a call about a man who was reportedly acting erratically and carrying a knife. When officers arrived on the scene, they found Allan walking down the street with a knife in his hand. The officers repeatedly ordered Allan to drop the knife, but he refused and continued to approach them.
The video shows Allan lunging at one of the officers with the knife, prompting the officers to open fire. Allan was hit multiple times and died at the scene.
The release of the video comes after months of protests and calls for transparency from the community. The Farmington Police Department says they hope the release of the footage will provide some closure for Allan’s family and help the community understand the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
The Davis County Attorney’s Office conducted an independent investigation into the shooting and determined that the officers involved acted in accordance with their training and the law. The officers have been cleared of any wrongdoing.
The Farmington Police Department says they are committed to transparency and accountability and will continue to work with the community to build trust and improve relations. – Wasatch Defense Lawyers does not represent any parties mentioned above.
