OGDEN, Utah (AP) — Police say an ex-convict with a record of violent crime was killed in an exchange of gunfire with officers when a former girlfriend flagged down police after an allegedly being abducted by the man.
Ogden City Police said Saturday that 37-year-old Richard Galvan fired first and officers returned fire Friday night after Galvan was spotted in downtown Ogden near the spot where he got out of her car.
Ogden Police Chief Randy Watt says Galvan and the woman met through social media and had a brief relationship before she ended it then found Galvan in her home when she awoke Friday.
Watt said Galvan served eight years in prison in Colorado for kidnapping and threatening police with a firearm, and he moved to Utah in October.
