Police warn drivers that a shooter is targeting vehicles traveling on I-15 in Utah


The Utah Highway Patrol (UHP) says that multiple people were injured after a suspect randomly fired on several vehicles including a semi truck yesterday.

The shootings were reported on the morning of Tuesday, November 30, 2021, on I-15 between Nephi and Scipio in Juab County, Utah.

According to UHP, four vehicles were shot — three of the vehicles were southbound on I-15 and one vehicle was northbound.

Local outlet Fox 13 reports that one of the vehicles that was shot was a semi truck.

Two people inside the targeted vehicles were hit by bullets and suffered non life-threatening injuries.

“The last report was that the suspect was southbound on I-15 but the last reported vehicle that was shot was northbound. The current whereabouts of the shooter are unknown at this time,” UHP said in a news release.

The suspect vehicle is thought to be a light colored SUV, possibly a Jeep Cherokee.
