Man arrested after shooting twice through Lehi home’s front door
LEHI, Utah — An Eagle Mountain man is facing multiple charges including aggravated assault after shooting through a front door in Lehi on Sunday.
Arresting documents for Christopher Chestnut say police responded to the scene of shots fired where two victims in the residence reported that Chestnut had shot twice into the front door and attempted to open the door. The two occupants and Chestnut exchanged words through the door before he fled the scene.
“Doorbell camera from neighboring homes caught the exchange and the altercation on surveillance,” the document said.
The victims told police they recognized Chestnut by his voice and the tattoos on his hands they could see through the gunshot holes in the door.
According to police documents the victims were sure if Chestnut had entered the home he would have hurt and possibly killed them.
After processing the scene and speaking with victims, officers located Chestnut at his residence and took him into police custody. He was found with evidence from the crime, police said.
Chestnut is facing charges of aggravated burglary, discharge of a firearm, aggravated assault, and criminal mischief.
