Police: shots fired at officers in West Valley City



WEST VALLEY CITY (ABC4 News) – A suspect fired at officers, igniting a chase Saturday evening, according to police.

Officers were conducting a VIN inspection on a suspect’s vehicle near 3367 South 4000 West when a Red SUV, apparently unrelated to the inspection, pulled up and someone inside the SUV shot at officers, according to Lt. Justin Wyckoff with West Valley Police Department.

The chase that followed took police from West Valley City to South Salt Lake, where officers found the suspect’s car abandoned, said Lt. Wyckoff.

Police said they are investigating if another traffic stop underway at 3800 West 4700 South was related to this incident. Officers questioned the people inside that vehicle “as a suspect in the earlier incident in which shots were fired at one of our officers,” according to a tweet by West Valley City Police

No one was injured in the shooting.

The incident is still under investigation.
