The exact timeline of events after that has not been confirmed by investigators, but we know that a bicyclist was found shot to death on Prospect Street. Two women were also shot, apparently by the same man, in the area of E. Platte Ave. and El Paso St.
Police later found the suspect near Platte Avenue and Wahsatch Avenue. That is where police said he opened fire on officers. Police shot back, killing him.
Deputies reported that the suspect was carrying multiple weapons.
