SALT LAKE CITY — The man accused of firing at Davis County sheriff's deputies on the Legacy Parkway last month will be in 3rd District Court on Friday on 21 new felony counts.
The charges involve shots fired at a pickup truck on I-215 in Salt Lake County.
Marco Antonio Guizar, 37, was charged Tuesday in 3rd District Court with two counts of first-degree felony attempted murder, second-degree felony use of a firearm by a restricted person, and 18 counts of third-degree felony discharge of a firearm.
The charges are in addition to those filed in 2nd District Court. Those include first-degree felony aggravated attempted murder, second-degree felony aggravated assault and third-degree felony failure to stop for police. Guizar was also charged with several misdemeanor counts of possession of a dangerous weapon with intent to assault and interference with an arresting officer.
Those charges stem from an incident in which Guizar allegedly shot at a vehicle on Jan. 16 on the Legacy Parkway, exited the road into Farmington and fled from a Davis County deputy who tried to stop him.
He allegedly evaded police by driving through a residential neighborhood, where he crashed his car into another containing two youths, police say.
Following the crash, he allegedly fired at a Farmington detective. Officers returned fire. No one was injured.
