West Valley City Man Shot by Police, Inside Police Department Headquarters

Posted Monday, April 29th 2013 @ 11am  by Talk Radio 105.7 FM / 570 AM

West Valley City Police have identified the man who entered their department headquarters, Monday morning, with a gun.

James Kammeyer, 39, was shot by a police officer after allegedly pulling a gun out of his pocket, while standing in the department's lobby.

Authorities say, four months ago the man told them he wanted to die in a 'suicide-by-cop,' because he is a registered sex offender and claims his wife had taken his children from him.

His injuries are not considered life-threatening.  He was the only one hurt in the incident. 

It's unclear whether Kammeyer fired his gun.
