OGDEN, Utah -- Authorities have identified a suspect who was shot and killed by police in Ogden Friday after officers responding to a domestic violence call arrived to find the man stabbing a woman.

According to the Ogden Police Department, 35-year-old Justin Patrick Moses was killed by an officer who observed him stabbing the woman and "took the necessary actions to defuse the incident" and shot Moses.

“They tried to talk to him, from what I understand, and then he wasn’t responding so they had to shoot him, which is unfortunate," said neighbor Janessa Pope.  "I was really scared."

Fire and medical crews arrived and determined Moses was deceased. Officers on scene gave immediate medical assistance to the female who was stabbed.

Saturday as of 1:30 p.m., Ogden police stated the woman who was stabbed is in critical condition at McKay Dee Hospital.

Police stated the officer who fired on the suspect is on paid administrative. An independent investigation is being carried out by the Weber County Homicide/Critical Incident Task Force. The officer has not yet been identified, but Ogden PD states he has been with the department since January 2013.

Neighbors tell FOX 13 there was no history of domestic violence between Moses and the female victim. They say she had been letting Moses stay in the home while he got back on his feet.

Anyone who is in danger or in need of help regarding domestic violence can call the Utah Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-897-5465. In an emergency, dial 911.

    What, the Peanut Gallery hasn’t chimed in yet with their usual anti-cop, “Why-did-you-shoot-the-murderer” whining?

    Well, give ’em time. I’m sure they won’t disappoint.


      You do realize that there is more than one Bob, Anotherbob, and variations on that theme don’t you Jason. Bob is correct however Jason in his comment that the anti-cop liberals always blubber when some criminal succeeds in getting the police to perforate him. Are you one of those liberals Jason?


      Your petulant response to Bob tells the world all we need to know about you. A childish immature little man without the literary skills to formulate an intelligent response. The puke got exactly what he deserved. He’s carved on his last female victim.


      Please excuse Jason’s outburst. He gets irritable and moody once a month at about this time. His favorite game is “pick up the soap”.
