Salt Lake City, Utah – The Salt Lake City Police Department has made public the bodycam footage from a critical incident that occurred on April 2, resulting in the death of a suspect.

According to reports, the incident took place on the 800 block of South State Street after police received a 911 call from an employee at a Chevron gas station. The employee informed the police that the suspect, identified as 36-year-old Cameron Ammon Cloward, had attempted to stab him through a window with a knife. Based on the employee’s statement, authorities believe that Cloward may have committed an aggravated robbery, using or threatening to use a dangerous weapon in the process.

Bodycam footage captured one of the officers instructing Cloward to cease approaching the gas station. Cloward, holding the knife with the blade situated under his chin, ignored the commands issued by the officers and repeatedly stated, “I don’t care.”
