Police Officer Doug Barney was shot and killed after responding to an accident near the intersection of 4500 South and 2300 East, in Holladay, shortly after 10:00 am.

Upon arriving at the scene he observed a man and woman who had been involved in the crash walking away from the vehicles. As he attempted to make contact with the pair the male subject produced a handgun and shot him in the head, fatally wounding him.

Other responding officers located the subject on a nearby street minutes later. An intense shootout occurred in which the man was killed and another officer was wounded. The female fled the scene and remains at large. It was later determined that the male subject had an extensive criminal history with active state and federal arrest warrants.

Officer Barney was a U.S. Navy veteran. He had served in law enforcement for 18 years and was assigned to the Unified Police Department of Greater Salt Lake's Holladay Precinct. He was survived by his wife and three children.

Douglas my friend, its been a whole year now since you were taken. A year seems so long and so short at the same time. Still I know for your family its got to feel painfully slow and hard especially for the kids. Thinking of you some of the calls and dumb things we went on about in Kearns made me laugh. Only Rookies hu?
RIP Brother
