Patrolman Huntsman and Patrolman Brigham Honey were shot and killed while attempting to arrest an armed robbery suspect. When Patrolman Huntsman ordered the man to stop the suspect hid behind a car and opened fire, striking him in the heart. Patrolman Honey was approaching the scene and exchanged shots with the suspect, striking him once. Two of the suspect's shots struck Patrolman Honey, mortally wounding him. The suspect grabbed his girlfriend and ran into a store where he shot and wounded the woman and then killed himself. Patrolman Honey succumbed to his wounds the following morning.
Patrolman Huntsman had been with the agency for nine months and was survived by his wife.

Rest in peace Patrolman Huntsman. Your life and courage were a part of legacy. I wonder if you were related to the Huntsman family and their cancer center in Utah. A real Utah hero.
