CLEARFIELD A road rage incident Monday evening left one person dead, according to Clearfield police. 

Assistant Chief Devin Rogers with the Clearfield Police Department told KSL that two vehicles were involved in a crash. One of the vehicles left the scene with the other pursuing it, which lasted for a few blocks.

Rogers said one of the vehicles stopped in the middle of the road. The driver of the fleeing vehicle got out of their vehicle and approached the second vehicle.

“This encounter resulted in a shooting which left the driver of the fleeing vehicle dead,” a Clearfield Police Department press release stated.

The deceased victim is a male in his 60s.

The shooting occurred in the area of 1200 W. 300 North at 6:26 p.m.

Rogers said there were no other injuries reported. The suspect is in custody and is cooperating in the investigation.

During the pursuit, the driver of the second vehicle was in contact with dispatch letting them know of their location, according to police.

Police said the original crash occurred near Industrial Parkway and state Route 193. The two vehicles then drove into a neighborhood around 75 N. 1000 West before the shooting took place.

On Tuesday morning, police confirmed both individuals involved are from Davis County. Police also said at least one shot was fired, but couldn’t confirm if there were more shots fired.

Police closed 1200 West from 200 North to 300 North for several hours Monday night.
