PROVO — Police are asking for the public's help in finding the person responsible for firing shots at a security booth in front of the Missionary Training Center in Provo two years ago.

On Aug. 3, 2020, just before 2:30 a.m., at 2005 N. 900 East, a white or silver older model Subaru sedan pulled up to the MTC entrance.

"A person exited the Subaru and pointed a firearm at the security booth and security officer inside. The person then fired multiple rounds towards the security guard and booth," according to a statement from Provo police.

No one was injured in the incident. The MTC was vacant of missionaries at the time due to COVID-19 restrictions. Police released surveillance video of the suspected vehicle about a week later, identifying it as a Subaru Outback.

On Thursday, Provo police issued a brief statement asking for the public's help in finding the person responsible. Anyone with information is asked to call Provo police at 801-852-6210.

Correction: An earlier headline incorrectly said the incident took place in 2021; it happened in 2020.
