Officers have been looking for Gurule since Aug. 26, when police say he shot and killed Justen L. Lefave in the doorway of the State Street apartment Lefave shared with a male roommate and that man's teenage son. Both were home at the time of the shooting.
According to police, Lefave opened to door to a knock, and conversed with two unidentified females. Gurule stepped out from behind the females, shot Lefave and fled.
A motive for the shooting remains unclear and witnesses told police they did not know Gurule.
"The impression we get is that [Lefave] didn't know him either," Hoyal said in August.
A check of court records shows Gurule has a criminal history that includes convictions on assault and drug possession charges. In October, Davis County prosecutors filed felony and misdemeanor drug possession charges against Gurule. He made an initial court appearance in Farmington last week and was scheduled for another hearing on Dec. 31.
