33-year-old Justin Gary Lewellan is still on the loose after police say he opened fire Saturday on two unified police officers near 4900 West and 135th South St.

The male fled from him and as he was approaching him he shot at the officer, neither officer was hit, but the suspect then pulled the trigger on a Riverton homeowner.

He then stole their vehicle which happened to have a gun in it.

That’s where Dan Perry was playing basketball when he noticed a lot of police in the area.

The victim who was shot by Lewellan was hit multiple times, but his condition has been upgraded Saturday and he is expected to be ok.

Lewellan is still on the loose, he is known to police he's from the Riverton, UT he has family in Herriman too.
