WEST VALLEY CITY — Police here were looking Monday for the man investigators say pitched a rock into his ex-girlfriend's windshield and then fired shots at the man trying to follow him.
A woman and her estranged husband were meeting near 3800 West and 4300 South about 12:30 a.m. to work on some issues, said West Valley Police Sgt. Mike Powell. While talking, a vehicle belonging to the woman's former boyfriend drove by and someone threw a rock through her car's windshield.
The estranged husband got in his own car and followed. But near 4000 South and 4300 West, someone in the ex-boyfriend's vehicle fired multiple shots at him about 1 a.m., Powell said.
No one was injured. The estranged husband called police at that point.
A Salt Lake police officer spotted the ex-boyfriend's vehicle and pursued for a short time on I-15 before calling off the chase for safety concerns. The ex-boyfriend's vehicle was later found abandoned in Salt Lake City about mid-morning Monday.
