ST. GEORGE — The person killed by St. George Police during a standoff at the Utah-Arizona Port of Entry along Interstate 15 earlier in the month has been identified as 83-year-old Raymond Derek Gladman.

The shooting occurred in the morning hours of Aug. 3 on the northbound side of the Port of Entry, where commercial traffic entering Utah is checked as well as size and weight requirements.

Gladman, who was not a local resident, was identified by the Washington County Attorney's Office as the person shot and killed by police a little over an hour into a standoff involving a passenger vehicle that was seen entering the Port of Entry area and driving erratically. He was a resident of Sedona, Arizona.

The Washington County Critical Incident Task Force, which handles officer-involved shootings, is continuing to investigate to determine if the shooting was justified.
