Pennington had previously tried to run one of the officers down when they tried to pull him over on investigation of burglary in the area of 9800 South Bangerter Highway.
The pursuit ended in a cul-de-sac at 2408 W. Marion Drive.
The officer involved in the shooting is now on administrative leave pending an investigation.
