Police on Saturday were investigating an officer-involved shooting in Kearns and trying to find a fugitive who fled the scene, possibly wounded.
Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said that about 2:50 a.m. officers observed a 1990 Lincoln Town Car near 5400 S. 4015 West. Police said the car was driven by a man matching the description of John Jesse Samora, 21, who has been known to carry weapons.
Officers said Samora tried to evade them by pulling into a parking lot about 4100 W. 5400 South and stopping. As officers approached he allegedly pulled out of the parking space and tried to hit the officers with his car. An officer fired a shot at Samora, who then drove away.
