ROY, Utah — A 35-year-old man is dead after an officer-involved shooting in Roy Tuesday morning.

The case is being investigated as a suicide by cop, according Roy police.

At approximately 4:04 a.m. officers were dispatched to the area of 3700 West and 5300 South on a threatened suicide that was reported to the Weber County Consolidated Dispatch Center from the suicide hotline. Police say a negotiator from the Weber Metro SWAT team attempted to negotiate a peaceful and non-hostile end for several hours.

Negotiation with the Roy man ultimately failed and shots were fired by members of the SWAT team, police say.

The man succumbed to his injuries at 11:15 a.m.

Police identified the man Wednesday as 35-year-old Jose Calzada.

Police say there were other individuals in the home at the time the original call was placed but they left shortly after – the man was the only one inside the home at the time of the shooting.

The Weber County Officer-Involved Fatality Protocol has been implemented and the investigation has been turned over to the Weber County Attorney’s Office.

More information will be provided as it becomes available.
