Salt Lake City Police Chief Chris Burbank speaks with reporters during a news conference Friday, March 28, 2014, in Salt Lake City. A California man was shot and killed Friday after opening fire on police officers during an overnight traffic stop in downtown Salt Lake City, authorities said. Two officers were wounded in the shootout and expected to survive, Burbank said. The incident began about 2:15 a.m. when an officer stopped a Jeep with two men inside about a block south of the Salt Palace Convention Center in a section of the city that is usually quiet and calm. The passenger, Christopher Leo Knight, 34, gave police misleading statements and officers asked him to get out of the car, authorities said. Knight then drew a handgun and opened fire on the officers, hitting one in the in the leg and the other in the arm, according to authorities. Both officers shot back, killing Knight.
