SALT LAKE CITY — Police are asking for help identifying a man they say shot at another motorist on I-215 Tuesday.

Police say the driver of newer model, blue Toyota Camry was attempting to merge on the transition ramp between state Route 201 and I-215 about 2:30 p.m. when "a difficulty occurred" with another driver in a white Chevy Colorado pickup.

The drivers continued southbound on I-215 to the 3500 South off-ramp, where the driver of the Camry, continuing on I-215, opened fire on the truck as it was exiting the freeway, police said. The truck was hit by multiple rounds, but damage was minimal and no one was injured. Police believe the man was using a handgun.

The driver of the Camry, which had Texas license plates, is described as a Hispanic male, about 30 years old. He is between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall, with a light build and short, dark hair. There were no passengers with him at the time of the incident.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Utah Highway Patrol at 801-965-4518.
