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 on Wednesday, July 14, 2021, after the Davis County Attorney’s Office cleared the officers involved of any wrongdoing.
The footage shows officers responding to a call about a man who was reportedly acting erratically and carrying a gun. When officers arrived on the scene, they found Allan walking down the street with a gun in his hand. The officers repeatedly ordered Allan to drop the weapon, but he refused and instead pointed the gun at the officers. The officers then fired their weapons, killing Allan.
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 help provide closure for Allan’s family and the community.
“We understand that this is a difficult and emotional time for everyone involved,” said Farmington Police Chief Wayne Hansen. “We hope that the release of this video will help provide some answers and bring closure to those who have been impacted by this tragic event.”
The Davis County Attorney’s Office conducted an independent investigation into the shooting and determined that the officers involved acted in accordance with the law and their training. The officers have since returned to duty.
The Farmington Police Department says they will continue to work with the community to build trust and improve transparency. They encourage anyone with questions or concerns to reach out to them directly. – Wasatch Defense Lawyers does not represent any parties mentioned above.
