Witnesses reported hearing 5 gunshots in rapid succession-leaving that male suspect dead.

:15-:21 :31-:37 "very scary" " mean it's scary."

For those who live near the intersection of 300 south and 500 east.

A series of gunshots- punctured an otherwise peaceful, sunny afternoon.

"it's really sad."

Police say that around 4 this afternoon - officers responded to a trespassing call.

"a fight ensued between officers and an individual, at which point in time shots were fired."

Police can't say if the suspect - had a weapon.

But after police and that suspect got into a fight-he lay dead on the parking lot of this maverick gas station.

Two officers-were then taken to the hospital.

"we saw a police officer get put in an ambulance and get taken away.

It looked like his leg was hurt."

No word on how long those officers - have worked for salt lake city police.

Or, if police knew the suspect involved.

But tonight-those who live nearby-say they are shaken by what happened near their homes.

"well i shop there all the time, it's kinda sad."

Nick officers in serious but stable condition they are expected to survive.

Live in salt lake, i'm nick mcgurk don a key piece of evidence is tossed out in the rape case of a former brighton high and usc football player..

Osa masina was kicked off the usc team after allegations of a rape surfaced in southern california.

Then he was charged in utah for rape as well... the state wanted to mention a snapchat video and testimony from someone who saw it during the utah case.

The person who saw it was the victim's ex-boyfriend.

He testified at an earlier hearing that it showed a non- consenual sex act.

The problem with snapchat videos, they disappear after they're viewed.

The trial is still moving forward and is scheduled to begin on october 16th.

Don president thomas s monson of the church of jesus christ of latter-day saints has been experiencing some health issues recently and will not be attending general conference this weekend.

Hales of the quorum of the twelve in the lds church will not be attending general conference either.

Amy dominguez, unidad immigrante: here she has been in the united states in utah for 14 years contributing.

Her kids are u.s. citizens.

They have been going to school here their entire lives.

Utah is all they have known so it's heartbreaking, it's heart wrenching and it's difficult to see that this is a reality for a lot of families.


Jim dabakis, d - 2nd district: how many people are going to go?

Hard working family people.

How many children are not going to have parents to satisfy what?

What's the upside?

This is an outrage.

Rick aaron: ice can allow undocumented immigrants like maria to stay in the u.s. for humanitarian reasons but new policies under a new president have them routinely denying humanitarian appeals like maria's.


Jim dabakis, d - 2nd district: this is a disgrace to the united states of america.

The president said he was going to throw out the drug dealers and he was going to throw out the criminals and look where this lands.

This is a disgrace.

Rick aaron: maria's 9 year old daughter sarayi says she wants to be a doctor.

She provided the most emotional moment of the evening.

Sarayi garcia, 9 years old: i don't want my mom to get deported cause i want to have a mom by my side so she can see me when i be a doctor and when she's sick i can cure her and protect her rick aaron: at the state capitol, rick aaron reporting.

[a23]balloon release for girl 10-ctr don family and friends gathered this evening to morn the loss of a three year old tayzli hale.

The northern utah girl died after a horseback riding accident... but her family is making sure her memory lives on.

Glen beeby was at that vigil tonight and has more.

:14-:19 :33-:44 :53-1:03 ashley bodine/family friend " it's been a shock for everyone we're all really heartbroken."

Her favorite color was pink...she loved princess parties...and the little girl everyone called tay tay had a smile that lit up a neighborhood.

" she was a ray of sunshine.

She was just happy bubbly and always grinning, and always laughing, and running."

Tayzli was riding on the back of a horse with a family member tuesday when the animal got spooked and she fell off hitting her head.

Doctors tried to save her but on wednesday they announced she no longer had brain function, and stopped breathing on her own.

"friends, family and neighbors are gathered using pink balloons to celebrate the young life that was lost, but hope for the young lives that could still be saved with her donation."

Tayzli's family decided to donate her organs.

Her mother told neighbors she's hopeful it will keep her daughters memory alive.

" there is absolutely no way that she'll be forgotten.

Those children's parents will remember her every day.

Those children will remember her everyday, they're kids will remember her everyday."

Family and friends said a prayer and had a moment of silence to remember tay tay.

They say while it's been hard to deal with young life ending so soon, many are taking comfort in knowing her light will live on in those that she saves.

Don that was glen beeby reporting... hospitals say child organ donation is so important because often ... due to their size... children in need of a transplant can only come from another child.

Don some breaking news now.

North ogden police need your help finding a 13 year old boy who is missing.

Parker alexander is just under 5 feet tall and weighs about 95 pounds.

He has dark brown hair and was last seen wearing dark pants, a blue t shirt with an abraham lincoln logo.

The teen has some mental difficulties and he was last seen around 2:30 this afternoon.

If you know where parker is please call north ogden police.

We'll be right back don this next story is for every woman and family who might be thinking about expanding their family.

What if there was a way to track exactly the two days a woman is most likely able to conceive.

Surae chinn looks into a device that claims to take all the stress and guess work out of having a baby.

Surae: it's called the ava sensor bracelet.

Worn at night only and tracks a woman's cycle revealing a woman's peak week and her two high peak days.

We met up with a st.

George mom who says she gave birth to the first 'ava baby' using this device.

Lizzie mcgee, mom, "look at momma cooing" two and a half month old jace came easy compared to lizzie mcgee's first born.

We tried for four years.

I was on over a year of fertility medication.

32-year-old lizzie and her husband were about to start artificial insemination after four years of heartache, when lizzie got pregnant with brooks.

So after all of everything it was a miracle that we were able to have my first.

When it was time to add to the family...the couple feared the same uncertainty.

I was nervous how long it would take for me to get pregnant with my second.

And we were trying 4 months before i saw the ava, lizzie saw the ava ad on facebook.

It took 6 months to receive the sensor bracelet because the product was so new.

The 10 months before, being one of the first to receive the device, she and her husband were blindly trying to conceive.

But with ava, 3 months later, lizzie got pregnant with jace.

I didn't call my husband first, i didn't call my mom first, i emailed ava, and i said 'your product worked!

I got pregnant!'


So how does it work?

And was it really the ava?

Nobody thinks they're going to be the first of anything.

The company that makes ava says jace is the product of the device.

This is the ava put on at night and it has all of the tracking, everything on there.

Through an app on your phone, ava measures 9 physiological parameters which provides information on the rise in reproductive hormones.

It goes through the resting pulse, skin temperature the calendar is color coded for the 5 day fertility window and two peak days before ovulation.

No need for ovulation strips and taking your basal temperature every morning.

Somewhere in the neighborhood of 1 in 6 couples will struggle to conceive.

Dr. erica johnstone, associate professor at the university of utah center for reproductive medicine says the device isn't for everyone and not necessary for healthy couples but it could help eliminate the guess work.

It's in some ways the next generation from things that have been used in the past, which might be ovulation predictor kits or phone apps that women use to track their cycles.

And this provides a little more information than those things do, ava took 2 months to figure out lizzie's body but by the was right on target.

I saw the ovulation date move back move back move back, and then it stuck on a day.

And it said 'this is going to be your day.'

Oh yeah, i called my mom and my sister, and i said 'this month i'm getting pregnant.'

The ava completely figured me out and there are dozens testimonials from women on facebook who say they got pregnant because of the ava bracelet.

There was so much guess work with my first going through infertility is one of the hardest things a woman can go through.

Especially in utah.

The culture is, i love the culture, but it's also very family, 'when are you going to get pregnant?

Dr. johnstone says if you're wanting to get pregnant, start with your doctor or obgyn.

Times when we get worried is if you've been trying to conceive for a year or more, then it's time to see a doctor, time to do some evaluation.

More cooing give smiles now to be able to just put on a bracelet before i go to bed, and then i am able to get to know my body, and to get this beautiful baby here, it's everything.

Surae/tag: it's too early for lizzie to want a 3rd but says if she decides on another child, she'll be using the ava bracelet.

I'm surae chinn, reporting.

Don the ava bracelet costs 250 bucks and was invented in switzerland.

It is an fda approved device and is in its second clinical trial.
