Utah officer who pulled gun on black child sparks protests

Activists are planning to protest outside a police agency’s headquarters in northern Utah after learning an officer who pulled his gun on a 10-year-old child will continue to work

WOODS CROSS, Utah — Activists are planning to protest at a police agency in northern Utah after learning an officer who pulled his gun on a 10-year-old child will continue to work.

Black Lives Matter in Utah founder Lex Scott said Thursday they will hold a protest Friday night to demand the officer be fired.

Woods Cross Police Chief Chad Soffe said Monday he is not looking to terminate the unidentified officer.

Jerri Hrubes said a white Woods Cross police officer pulled his gun on her son, who is black, while he was playing outside on June 6.

Soffe said the officer mistook the boy for a potential suspect during a pursuit of armed suspects.

Hrubes said the officer apologized but she still wants the agency held accountable.
