Damon Lee Weems (4718)



4/11/2009: During a family dispute, Weems allegedly threatened his mother with a knife to get a shotgun she was trying to hide from him. Weems struggled with his mother over the gun, firing it into wall and nearly hitting his 10-year-old son, prosecutors said. Weems then barricaded himself in a bedroom and fired his gun twice as officers tried to get his mother and son out of the apartment. He allegedly came out, carrying gun in "an aggressive 'ready' position," prosecutors wrote. Sgt. Mike Elliott and Officer Brian Seward fired, both striking him. Weems fired, narrowly missing Elliott. http://www.sltrib.com/news/1938044-155/shootings-by-police-vastly-underreported-in
