WEST JORDAN, Utah – Officials have identified the man killed in an officer-involved shooting as 22-year-old Diamonte Riviore. He was shot after police responded to a report of an armed domestic dispute.

Sergeant J.C. Holt with the West Jordan Police Department said officers responded before 4:30 p.m. Thursday to an apartment at Liberty Landing, near 7000 S. Cherry Leaf Dr., and encountered Riviore, along with a woman and infant who lived there.

“There was a male suspect at one point that got into an altercation with the officer,” Holt said. “We have at least one officer who fired (a) shot or shots at the suspect, striking him and killing him.”

Holt said Riviore did not currently live at the apartment.

“It’s my understanding that they had a previous relationship — boyfriend, girlfriend — that they had lived together in the past,” Holt said.

Holt said though dispatch received a call of an armed domestic dispute, it was not immediately clear if Riviore was armed.

While police said they were unsure how many shots were fired, Madelyn Hutchins, who lives across the parking lot, said she heard three “pops.”

“It was a huge shock, you know, realizing, ‘oh, those three pops I heard not even 20 minutes ago were gunshots,’” Hutchins said.

Holt said the officer who opened fire and the woman and child inside the apartment were not injured.

The officer was placed on leave per protocol and pending the investigation.

Investigators said officers had responded to the location before on similar domestic complaints.

Neighbors remained stunned over the events that unfolded rapidly in their apartment complex.

“That’s unusual for this part of town,” Hutchins said. “It was crazy.”
