FARMINGTON -- A man who shot at a truck on Legacy Parkway entered guilty pleas to the charges on Thursday.
Marco Antonio Guizar, 37, of Taylorsville, entered guilty pleas to charges of attempted aggravated murder, a first-degree felony; and aggravated assault and evading, third-degree felonies.
A sentencing hearing is set for May 16.
No one was injured in the shootings that happened on Jan. 16 in Farmington, but police vehicles and Guizar's car received some damage from gunfire, police said.
The incident began when dispatchers received several calls informing police that someone in a gray passenger vehicle had shot at a white pickup truck on Legacy Highway, police said. The gray vehicle left Legacy Highway at Park Lane and was spotted by police. A chase ensued through several neighborhoods and, at some point, shots were exchanged.
Guizar still faces multiple felony charges in 3rd District Court in Salt Lake City.
On March 7, the Salt Lake Police Department filed an additional eight felonies against Guizar. He is charged with four counts of aggravated assault and four counts of discharge of a firearm, all third-degree felonies. Those charges stem from a shooting on Jan. 12, at 600 N. 1200 West, according to court documents. A car had been shot at, and the rear window of that car had shattered. Police recovered several shell casings from the area and also interviewed Guizar at the Davis County Jail, where he is being held without bail.
Guizar admitted to police "that he aimed for and shot at" the vehicle eight or nine times, according to the court document.
He is scheduled to appear in 3rd District Court on that case today.
He is scheduled to appear April 29 in 3rd District Court on two other cases.
According to 3rd District Court documents, Guizar is charged with two counts of attempted aggravated murder, first-degree felonies; one count of possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person, a second-degree felony; and 18 counts of felony discharge of a firearm, all third-degree felonies.
On Jan. 23, West Valley Police filed two counts of aggravated assault, third-degree felonies, against Guizar in 3rd District Court. Those charges stem from Jan. 15, when two people reported a man, later identified as Guizar, had shot at them on Interstate 215 near 3500 South. One car was struck three times on the driver's side, and the other car was struck 15 times, according to the probable cause statement filed in 3rd District Court.
The third case stems from a two shootings in West Valley on Jan. 16. A woman said a man, who was later identified as Guizar, pointed a gun at her car. On the same day, another man called police to say a man, who was later identified as Guizar, pulled up next to him on 2500 Lake Park Blvd., West Valley, and pointed a gun at him.
