20 Year Old Executed by Police, Allegedly for Wearing Headphones, Unable to Hear Orders

Dillon Taylor, 20 years old, was executed by the Salt Lake City Police around 7pm, Monday night for failing to comply with officers orders. The young man was reportedly wearing headphones and likely couldn’t hear the officers.
Taylor, his brother, and cousin were at 7-Eleven in South Salt Lake City when cops began searching the area for a suspect who was allegedly waving a gun in the general vicinity.

When the three young men exited the convenience store they were surrounded by officers and ordered to show their hands. Two of the men stopped and complied, Dillon Taylor, listening to music, seemingly did not hear the officers and kept walking until he was savagely gunned down by at least one officer.

Three officers are reportedly on paid vacations, but it is still unclear how many officers fired at Taylor or how many times he was shot before his death.

“They were obviously upset their friend had been shot and kept screaming for him to wake up, and he never did. He died in the parking lot, they were saying he did not have a gun, and they were very upset because of that.” a witness told KSL.
