A driver suspected of shooting at other vehicles on Legacy Highway was arrested Wednesday by Davis County deputies in Farmington after leading officers on a car chase that ended in a shootout, according to police.
During a media briefing Wednesday night, Farmington police Chief Wayne Hansen said a man in a gray car was firing at a white pickup on the highway near Farmington at about 5 p.m. The shots were reported by multiple people to 911 dispatchers, which prompted officers to respond to the area. Hansen said he did not believe the people in the pickup were injured. The suspect, who was not named, exited onto Park Lane, where he was met by two Davis County sheriff's deputies in their cruisers, Hansen said.
A chase then ensued, ending at 650 W. State St., where the deputies and the suspect exchanged gunfire. Hansen said that the suspect sustained "superficial" injuries and may not have even been shot. He was taken to the hospital and was cooperating with investigators, Hansen said. The man still was not booked into jail, but Hansen said that an arrest was pending.
