A suspect sought in a Salt Lake City shooting that last week left a man in critical condition has been arrested along with a female companion in Summit County.

Summit County Sheriff’s Capt. Justin Martinez said Monday that Anthony Lamar Vick, 32, was found sitting in the back seat of a car pulled over for illegal lane changes and a broken tail light Sunday night on Interstate 80, near Parleys Summit.

A sheriff’s deputy had first observed the suspect vehicle on a nearby county road and followed it onto the freeway.

"As the deputy was making contact with the female driver he noticed an open box of Bud Light on the floor and the two passengers were acting extremely nervous," Martinez said.

When the deputy asked for identities of the passengers, the driver would not name the male in the back seat, and both passengers subsequently provided false information when questioned, Martinez said.

Nonetheless, the deputy eventually learned that the female passenger was Holly Hathcock, who turned out to be wanted on multiple felony warrants. The male passenger was determined to be Vick, wanted on a $1 million arrest warrant out of Salt Lake City.

Vick had been sought in the May 29 beating and near-fatal shooting of Chervon Laptiste near 2600 S. Highland Drive (about 1250 East). Police, responding to an early-morning 911 call about gunshots being fired, found Laptiste lying in a pool of blood in the middle of the street.

Last Friday, Vick and a co-defendant, Britney Flint-Jones, 31, each were charged with attempted aggravated murder, aggravated kidnapping, felony discharge of a firearm and other counts.
