Utah's Attorney General is defending his office's investigation into a deadly police- involved shooting in Farmington.

Attorney General Mark Shurtleff says expert investigators interviewed many who saw and heard what happened on Sept. 22, the day Brian Wood was killed following a 12-hour standoff with police.

He said, "And it wasn't just a law enforcement officers who were interviewed, there were all of the witnesses present, a lot of people were there, from the very first phone call to that last deadly shot."

The investigators determined a Davis County deputy fired one shot at Wood after he pointed his gun in his direction. His family initially claimed Wood had been tased and was on the ground when he was shot.
