WOODS CROSS, Utah (AP) — Activists are planning to protest at a police agency in northern Utah after learning an officer who pulled his gun on a 10-year-old child will continue to work.
Black Lives Matter in Utah founder Lex Scott said Thursday they will hold a protest Friday night to demand the officer be fired.
Woods Cross Police Chief Chad Soffe said Monday he is not looking to terminate the unidentified officer.
Jerri Hrubes said a white Woods Cross police officer pulled his gun on her son while he was playing outside on June 6.
Soffe said the officer mistook the boy for a potential suspect during a pursuit of armed suspects.
Hrubes said the officer apologized but she still wants the agency held accountable.
