UT: Resident Shoots, Kills Knifeman in Backyard
When officers arrived, a 37-year-old resident said he had heard a noise in his backyard and went to investigate. Once outside, the man said he was confronted by a male suspect who was armed with a knife.
"The confrontation quickly escalated and the [68-year-old] male suspect was shot and later pronounced dead at the scene," according to a press release from police. A second press release issued later Saturday identified that suspect as David Antonio Trujillo. Police have not yet found a current address for the man but said he frequented various hotels and motels in South Salt Lake.
