Donald Ball Obituary, Death – The 41-year-old Donald Wayne Ball, whose life was brutally cut short in an incident with law enforcement, left the Wasatch County community reeling. Donald Ball was shot and killed by a Summit County sheriff’s officer on Friday, according to a statement provided by the Wasatch County Sheriff’s Office. The deputy had apparently seen Ball approach with a big blunt object. The deputy retaliated by firing his gun.
A Summit County sheriff’s deputy saw a car in the Kamas area that was registered to Ball at around 12:30 on Thursday morning, which set off the series of events that resulted in this unfortunate occurrence. Notably, Ball had an outstanding warrant for his arrest with no bail, which complicated the developing circumstances. The pursuit that resulted from the vehicle’s attempted stop ended in a collision on Bench Creek Road in Wasatch County.
