OGDEN, Utah (AP) — Gunfire erupted as anti- drug police served a search warrant in an Ogden neighborhood, fatally wounding one officer and injuring five other police and a suspect, authorities said.

The shots rang out before 9 p.m. Wednesday as police converged at a residence on Jackson Avenue, police spokesman Lt. Tony Fox said.

The six officers were hospitalized along with a suspect, Fox told The Associated Press.

Ogden police said in a statement early today that agent Jared Francom died from his wounds following Wednesday night’s drug-related shooting.

Five police officers from multiple agencies remain hospitalized with serious to critical injuries. No more information on their conditions was released.

The sole suspect in the shooting is at a local hospital under guard, with non- life threatening injuries.

No names have been released.
