WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (AP) — A man shot and wounded by an officer in a suburban Salt Lake City police station after he pointed a gun at another officer and a clerk has been arrested on suspicion of attempted homicide and threat of terrorism.
West Valley City police Sgt. Jason Hauer says 39-year-old James Ramsey Kammeyer was released from the hospital Monday afternoon and booked into Salt Lake County jail.
Kammeyer also faces charges of aggravated assault and possession of a weapon by a prohibited user.
Kammeyer is a registered sex offender. In December, he told officers responding to a call of a suicidal person that he wanted to die by being shot by police.
The shooting Monday morning in the police station lobby caused panic at a bustling train and bus stop nearby. Kammeyer was shot twice in the arm. No one else was hurt.
