The family of a woman who was killed by police officers in West Valley City, Utah, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit. According to regional media outlet Fox 13 News, the incident occurred at approximately 1:20 p.m. on Friday, November 2, 2012 when 21-year-old Danielle Willard was fatally shot outside an apartment complex. The source states that two police detectives — Shaun Cowley and Kevin Salmon — fired their weapons at Willard after the victim allegedly drove toward them in a way that they felt threatened their lives.
The law enforcement officials have been placed on administrative leave as a result of the shooting.
"There does not appear to be any evidence that would suggest Officer Cowley and Officer Salmon assassinated Ms. Willard as the claim asserts," the attorney representing the detectives told the source. "As such, the officers will vigorously defend themselves against these allegations."
