A Saratoga Springs man died during the weekend after he was shot by an off-duty FBI agent at a brewery in New Mexico.

The Associated Press reported Cody Guy Wrathall, 43, was allegedly threatening his ex-girlfriend with a gun inside the Nexus Brewery in Albuquerque on Saturday evening.

Off-duty federal agents who happened to be at the brewery intervened and at least one agent fired at Wrathall. He later died at the hospital from at least one gunshot wound.

The incident is still under active investigation.

Wrathall worked as a veterinarian at South Valley Equine in South Jordan for the past two years, according to his staff profile on the clinic website.

He graduated Tooele High School in 1994 and studied bioveterinary science at Utah State University before graduating in 1998. He also graduated in veterinary medication from Purdue University in 2002.

Wrathall later worked at Rocky Mountain Large Animal Clinic in Spanish Fork and Arrowhead Veterinary Clinic in Payson.

According to the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing, he received a public reprimand for self-medicating with drugs in June 2018.
