It’s currently unclear what led to the shots being fired and police say a motive is unclear at this time.

The two officers who fired back at the suspect have both been taken to hospital.

One of the officers is in a critical condition after being shot in the eye.

The second officer was shot in the face, though is said to be stable.

Both of the officers were part of the campus security team that patrols the area around the station, Salt Lake County Sheriff Rosie Rivera said.

“These types of incidents are really devastating for the department,” Rivera told local media. “We hope and we pray that our deputies will be OK.”
