HERRIMAN, Utah, Dec. 5, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — Police have arrested a suspect believed to be connected to a package theft that ended in a shooting in Herriman late last month.
Unified Police Detectives, with the assistance of the West Wendover Police Department and the United States Marshals Service, arrested Patrick N. Laugan for attempted criminal homicide and package theft, according to a news release.
The arrest took place Monday at 2 a.m. in a motel in West Wendover, and Laugan is currently in the Elko, Nevada, County Jail, the news release said. Laugan is a convicted felon and a restricted person.
The crime occurred at approximately 11:20 a.m. on Nov. 29 in the area of 5200 South and Ambermount Drive in Herriman.
A witness spotted two people stealing packages and took photographs of the suspect vehicle, a Chevy Impala, then followed the suspect’s car out of the neighborhood onto Juniper Crest Road.
As the witness followed the suspect vehicle, the alleged suspect leaned out of the window and fired a round at the witness with a black handgun.
The witness was not hit, but discontinued the pursuit and reported the incident to police.
Unified Police detectives also located and seized Laugan’s Chevrolet Impala in West Wendover. UPD detectives are still in West Wendover processing evidence in the case.
