ST. GEORGE — The person killed by St. George police during a standoff at the Utah-Arizona Port of Entry along Interstate 15 earlier this month has been identified as 83-year-old Raymond Derek Gladman.

The shooting occurred on the morning of Aug. 3 on the north side of the Port of Entry, where commercial traffic entering Utah is checked as well as height and weight requirements.

Gladman, who was not a local resident, was identified by the Washington County District Attorney’s Office as the person fatally shot by police just over an hour in a standoff involving a passenger vehicle that was seen entering port of entry area and driving erratically. He resided in Sedona, Arizona.

The Washington County Critical Incident Task Force, which handles shootings involving officers, is continuing its investigation to determine if the shooting was justified.
