(Pathathai Chungyam / Dreamstime.com)
Woods Cross, Utah, Police Chief Chad Soffe is defending an officer who pulled a gun on a 10-year-old boy playing in his grandmother's yard. Soffe says the officer was one of several chasing suspects in a reported shooting and mistook the boy for one of the suspects. He says despite that mistake the officer handled the situation well, but he has asked the district attorney to look into the matter.
