An officer recognized Miguel Gutierrez-Martinez, 18, a suspect in a recent shooting, driving in the area. The officer attempted to stop the car but it fled from him. Officers converged and followed Martinez until he ran a red light, collided with another vehicle and crashed into a power pole. Officers were able to take Martinez and two passengers safely into custody. All parties were medically cleared at the scene. Martinez-Gutierrez was booked into jail on seven counts of discharge of a firearm, riot, failure to stop for officers, and reckless driving.
155 W. 200 S.
Officers responded to Club Elevate on reports of a man with a gun. Earlier, club security had escorted two patrons out of the club who left unwillingly and had suffered minor cuts and scrapes. One of the men returned to the club shortly after. He approached a security guard and threatened him with a handgun. The guard swiped the gun aside and ran into the establishment to warn others. The suspect initially followed him in shouting and then fled the club. Officers located suspect Luis Rincon, 45, nearby. He was transported to a local hospital for stitches from his first altercation with club security and then booked for aggravated assault and aggravated burglary.
