KEARNS — A man was taken into custody Thursday after a foot chase with police officers that involved gunfire.
Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said that around 5:20 pm a Taylorsville police officer working with the Joint Criminal Apprehension Team near 2900 West and West Sams Boulevard recognized Bryan Manseau, 35, walking down the street. The officer knew Manseau to have outstanding warrants for possession of a controlled substance.
The police officer attempted to arrest Manseau, who fled on foot. During the pursuit, Manseau produced a firearm. The officer told the him to drop his weapon and when he did not, the officer opened fire, Hoyal said.
The suspect, who was not hit by the gunfire, continued to flee, but was apprehended shortly after when backup police officers converged on his position.
"Nobody was hurt, fortunately," Hoyal said.
Officials said the officer will be placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation into the incident by the Unified Police Department, Taylorsville Police Department, United State's Marshall's Office and Salt Lake District Attorney's Office.
