Witness video shows police arresting a fugitive on parole and a gang member accused of murdering his girlfriend.
This arrest early Saturday morning sent Terence Vos, 31, back to prison. Unified Police said Vos killed his girlfriend, Shandon Scott, in Millcreek. Then, they said, he crashed his car on Interstate 80 around 3 a.m. on Saturday and fled, leaving Scott’s body inside.
Sam Price was listening to a police scanner when he heard about the crash and the suspect’s pursuit. He drove nearly 2,700 South 300 East to South Salt Lake and saw a significant police presence.
Price pulled out his phone and ended up filming for 40 minutes – streamed live on Facebook – as police took Vos into custody.
âI went where they actually had the guy on the pitch,â Price told 2News. He watched the medics examine Vos, drove him to a sidewalk where they waited 15 minutes, and finally took him to a team car.
Price said he saw blood on Vos’s tank top and face.
Vos, who has a long criminal history dating back to 2006, was in prison but was on parole. Officers lost sight of him, however, and he had been a fugitive since February.
2News investigative reporter Wendy Halloran has been investigating fugitives on parole for months, including Vos, and recently reported on the issues that adult probation and parole (AP&P) officers face when supervise parolees. In the past six months, on average, AP&P has lost track and could not represent 328 parolees statewide each month, Halloran found.
Early Saturday morning, Price filmed until the police took Vos away. He said he felt the agents handled everything in a professional manner.
Meanwhile, prosecutors are still reviewing the charges against Vos, the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office told 2News Thursday afternoon.
