PROVO, Utah — Police have caught a man suspected of shooting a homeowner in Herriman and exchanging gunfire with police officers while trying to escape last weekend.

The Daily Herald in Provo reports that Justin Llewelyn was apprehended Wednesday afternoon following a chase that started on Interstate 15 near Provo and ended in Spanish Fork. The suspect and a deputy were injured in the pursuit but are expected to survive.

Authorities had been looking for the 33-year-old Llewelyn since a Herriman homeowner was shot Saturday. The victim was shot twice, but survived.

Police had previously arrested two people on suspicion of obstructing justice in the case.

Llewelyn is in the Salt Lake County jail on suspicion of a number of charges, including aggravated robbery and burglary.

Records do not list an attorney for Llewelyn.
