FARMINGTON — Police arrested a man suspected of shooting randomly at a vehicle on Legacy Parkway Wednesday evening.
Marco Antonio Guizar, 37, who police say has multiple addresses along the Wasatch Front, was taken into custody near 650 West State Street in Farmington, after he and two law enforcement officers allegedly exchanged gunfire.
Guizar allegedly fired at a white pickup truck about 5 p.m. on Legacy Highway.
In a press conference on Wednesday evening, Farmington Police Chief Wayne Hansen said several people on the parkway called 911 reporting the incident. No one in the truck was hurt.
The shooter allegedly exited the Legacy Parkway onto Park Lane, where police pursued him through several Farmington neighborhoods. During that chase, shots were exchanged between the man and two officers — a Farmington Police officer and a Davis County Sheriff's deputy.
Guizar sustained what Hansen described as "superficial injuries." None of the parties involved suffered gunshot wounds but both officers were placed on administrative leave.
On Thursday, Hansen said police had not learned of a motive for the shooting. "It's bizarre behavior," the chief said.
Farmington Police are working with several law enforcement agencies in Salt Lake County to investigate whether Wednesday night's incident is connected to a similar incident that occurred on I-215 at about 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday. It happened in the area of a ramp merging eastbound State Road 201.
"Everything we've got looks like they are connected," Hansen said.
In that incident, a white pickup was allegedly fired on by a man in a blue Camry with Texas license plates. The car Guizar was driving is a rental car described as a gray Camry with Texas license plates.
Guizar was booked into the Davis County Jail on three aggravated assault charges, attempted murder, interfering with a police officer, no insurance and posession of a dangerous weapon. He also is being detained on immigration violations.
