ROY, Utah — A man is dead after police say he broke into to a Tanner Clinic office in the middle of the night.
Police say he was trying to get into a closed pharmacy at the clinic, at 3400 West and 5600 South in Roy. A woman who was cleaning the building says he came in with a bandana over his face.
Ogden Police say one of their K9 officers was called to help Roy Police. The dog began searching for the suspect when they say he attacked the officers with a knife and was shot and killed. An initial news release says the Ogden officer fired several rounds in self-defense.
