Christopher Cotton (3890)



8/22/2007: Cotton was asleep in a car parked at a 7-Eleven when Salmon stopped for a drink and saw him. Two hours later, Officer Kevin Salmon saw Cotton still was asleep and employees wanted Cotton to leave because he was taking up a handicapped parking space. Salmon called for assistance and woke up Cotton; Salmon said Cotton acted nervously and had no ID. Cotton was holding a gun, which he allegedly turned toward Salmon. Salmon and Officer Tyler Longman fired multiple shots at Cotton. http://www.sltrib.com/news/1938044-155/shootings-by-police-vastly-underreported-in
