SALT LAKE CITY, UT (ABC 4 News) -A shooting Monday morning left one security guard dead. A suspect identified as 27-year-old Curtis Allgier led police on a high speed chase through Salt Lake. He was arrested at a Salt Lake City Arby's restaurant after injuring two employees there.
The shooting happened at the University of Utah Orthopaedic Center on campus. The suspect was there for a medical appointment at 7:45 a.m.
Allgier was a prisoner who took a Department of Corrections security guard's gun and shot him in the head.
Allgier then hijacked an SUV. There were people in the vehicle at the time, but they were not injured.
Allgier led police on a high-speed pursuit with speeds up to 100 miles an hour. He got on I-15, then headed north on I-215. Officers finally used spike strips to stop Allgier at an Arby's restaurant at 1700 South Redwood Road.
Inside the restaurant, at least one person was shot and injured by Allgier but was able to walk out, said Salt Lake City police Sgt. Rich Brede. A second Arby's employee was also treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Allgier was not armed when he was captured inside the manager's office, Brede said.
Tom Patterson, Director of the Department of Corrections, says Allgier has affiliation with a White Supremacy group.
The security guard who was killed has been identified as 60-year-old Stephen Anderson of Bluffdale, Utah. Anderson is described as a family man.
Anderson "dedicated his life to the people of Utah," says Patterson. Anderson had been with the Department of Corrections for 22 years.
Anderson's son, Shawn, also works at the prison in the maintenance department.
A spokesman for the Utah Department of Corrections said officers routinely transport prisoners to the university for medical appointments.
"Nobody here can remember one of our officers ever being killed during a transfer," spokesman Jack Ford said.
The university serves as a regional medical center for Utah and has two hospitals and other facilities, including the orthopaedic center.
