(KSL News) One of the Salt Lake City police officers involved in taking down the Trolley Square shooter spoke to the Deseret Morning News.
Sergeant Josh Scharman says he and the other officers aren't comfortable with the media attention they've received. He says the real focus should be on the victims.
He did say while police wish they could have done more, they feel they succeeded in doing their jobs since no one else was shot once they arrived. Once the shooter, Suljemen Talovic, was down, Scharman said the officers didn't believe the threat was over.
As a routine safety precaution, Talovic was handcuffed and a guard placed over him even though he was dead. Officers then spent the next 40 minutes searching for a possible second gunman. At one point there were even rumors of a third gunman.
