I bet that was a big letdown for the police...they didn't have to shoot anybody...

Why were they surprised to find him dead? Don't these "professionals" know what a gun shot sounds like??

If this man was shot why did his family find no blood in the house when they returned home this afternoon? And why did they not use tear gas sooner to end the situation? This man only had one leg and at one point his daughter had him talked out of the house (without his gun) and so many swat rushed him it scared him right back into the house. He never threatened to kill his family, he was dying of cancer and had just had enough he never threatened anyone but himself. One more question out of curiosity then I'm done why would it require 40 canisters of tear gas for a house less than 1000 square feet? Doesn't that seem a little much??? I think So. S.L.P.D handled this situation very poorly and I wish they would do away with south salt lake and make it all sherriffs like they were going to a while back. But what do I know I'm just a tax paying citizen.

40 cans of tear gas..i think that is more than enough to cause death...
i guess that 'looks' better that filling the entire house with bullet holes....

Police training seems to have been reduced to control all situations
with death....
