ELKO – A suspect in a late Saturday night shooting in Utah was arrested early Sunday morning in Carlin.

Kyle Loyd, 34, of Magna was involved in a domestic dispute at about 10 p.m. and shot a man in the face at an apartment complex parking lot in Taylorsville, according to Brett Miller, deputy chief of special operations for the Taylorsville Police Department.

Loyd was known to have ties to California, so Nevada authorities were contacted.

According to Elko Central Dispatch, the vehicle Loyd was known to be driving was located early Sunday morning traveling west on Interstate 80, east of Carlin. Troopers with the Nevada Highway Patrol and officers with the Carlin Police Department initiated a traffic stop and arrested the driver.
