The innocent driver was struck in the shoulder by a bullet as Utah County Sheriff’s deputies exchanged gunfire with a man they were pursuing.

The incident originated in Nephi at about 6 p.m. when officials received a report of a man who fired a gun at a gas station, according to Utah County Sheriff’s Sgt. Spencer Cannon. Approximately 30 minutes later, deputies located the man’s vehicle in Springville and attempted to pull him over, but the man did not stop and fired shots at the officers. The deputies returned gunfire and a low-speed chase ensued.

More gunfire was exchanged during the pursuit on I-15, which resulted in a motorist being hit by a bullet. The man officers were after was also shot, ending the pursuit in Orem, Cannon said.
