A Lapoint Woman Calls 911 Saying Shots Were Fired And An Officer Had Been Shot


Lapoint, Ut.— On Friday March 8th, 2024, Uintah County Deputies were dispatched to a residence Of shots fired.

Dispatch advised that the complainant 49-year-old Roburta Ann Tabbee, who was staying at the residence and stated that a BIA officer had been shot and was calling out for help.

BIA Officer White made first contact with Roburta, who stated there were two others with her inside the camper. Officer White asked for the status of the two people in the trailer, and Roburta said the male was shot but was saying he was okay.

Due to dispatch advising that Roburta had a firearm, Deputy Mieure asked her to exit the camper so that the officers could render aid to the patients inside the trailer. Still, Roburta refused to exit or open the blinds for the officers so they could look into the trailer.

The officers attempted to contact the male several times by phone to check on his welfare but were unsuccessful. They learned that Roburta had been trespassed from the property recently but refused to leave.

During the attempts to negotiate with Roburta, Det. Meinrod learned that the camp trailer she was living in had been stolen. The officers then decided to breach the trailer's door and enter.
