WEBER COUNTY, Utah — A man who shot and killed after charging at deputies while pointing a handgun at them.
Investigators believe them man, identified as 32-year-old Cody Jay Hadley, was high on methamphetamine and distraught over family issues
Bodycam video was released Tuesday from the responding Weber County sheriff’s deputies as well as a 911 call placed by a resident.
At about 10:40pm that night, a woman called 911 to report that someone had broken into the family’s camping trailer parked in their driveway, and fired shots.
“We have somebody out in our trailer, he’s got a gun,” she told emergency dispatchers in a recording of the call.
As deputies arrived at the scene, one grabbed his rifle and positioned himself outside the trailer.
“Sheriff’s office, everyone inside the trailer come outside,” the deputy is heard calling in the bodycam video. “Come out with your hands up.”
After a moment of silence, the deputy sees two feet between the trailer and an RV parked nearby. The deputy can be heard ordering the person to come out from the hiding space with his hands up.
As Hadley comes out from between the trailer and and RV, he immediately begins running toward the deputies, raises a handgun and points it at the deputies.
After yelling several times, “Drop the gun!” deputies open fire, killing Hadley.
The deputies who fired shots were placed on administrative leave while the investigation takes place under the officer-involved incident protocol.
The Weber County Attorney’s Office on Tuesday said investigators have learned so far that Hadley was holding a .40-caliber handgun when he was shot — and that he was under the influence of meth and “distraught over family issues” at the time.
