A little after 3 a.m., an agitated man called dispatchers and said he was holding a woman hostage in a vehicle. Not knowing who made the call, or whether the threat was legitimate, and having no officers in the vicinity, UPD Millcreek officers were dispatched to the area. Police got the license plate of a truck as it left the area. At about 4 a.m. UPD received information that West Valley City police were in pursuit of the same truck. During the pursuit through Magna, West Valley City officers deployed tire spikes to disable the truck, and it eventually came to a stop. A UPD officer who arrived to assist approached the vehicle and shot and killed the man inside the cab of the truck. The woman who was inside the truck was not struck by gunfire. She was treated for injuries allegedly inflicted upon her by the man.
