Outside Agency Officer Involved Shooting
1149 S. Foulger St.
The U.S. Marshalls JCAT (Joint Criminal Apprehension Team), of which Salt Lake City Police Department is not a part of, was attempting to serve an arrest warrant without prior notice to the police department. A male outside the residence fired a handgun at the task force officers. More than one task force officer returned fire, striking the suspect. Salt Lake City officers responded after the shooting. Once officers were able to apprehend the subject safely, he was transported to a local hospital where he later died. The subject has been identified as Ronnie Manuel Ontiveros (1/15/76). Negotiations resulted in two males and a female exiting the house. One of the males was the person JCAT was looking for. James Mciff (11/5/82) was booked for parole or probation violation. The female, Amber Zinda (6/22/78), was booked for possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and failure to stop. A female who was located in the garage and the second man from inside the home were released.
