Jared Joseph Christen (6368)

10/11/2011: Officers responded to Christen's home after a 911 call from his wife claiming that he was throwing furniture and getting violent. The officers arrived to find Christen and his two sons in the basement, and Christen refused to come out. He then began firing on the officers with a rifle, advancing up the stairs and continually firing. An officer fired back, hitting him four times and killing him. A review of the shooting found the officers were "clearly and legally justified," an investigation later found. http://www.powelltribune.com/news/item/9051-shooting-of-cody-man-deemed-%E2%80%98absolutely%E2%80%99-justified?tmpl=component&print=1
