Feds Arrest Murder Suspect at C.R. England Truck Driving School
Salt Lake City, UT – A surveillance operation carried out by U.S. Marshals this week resulted in the arrest of a Georgia man suspected of shooting and killing one person and severely injuring another.
On Wednesday, the U.S. Marshal’s Violent Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (VFAST) surveilled the Premier Truck Driving School, which is owned and operated by mega carrier C.R. England.
In the course of the operation, VFAST arrested a fugitive Khalid Mahamed Hirmoge, 29, of Atlanta, GA, who was enrolled in the truck driving school.
According to court documents, on June 26, 2020, Hirmoge “shot two people, killing one and substantially wounding the other” while in a nightclub in Decatur, GA.
Shortly following the shooting, Hirmoge moved to Utah and then enrolled at Premier Truck Driving School located at 4701 W. 2100 South, according to investigators.
VFAST, which is a joint task force consisting of officers from more than 20 local, state and federal agencies in Utah, took Hirmoge into custody without incident, according to authorities.
C.R. England has not publicly commented on the ordeal.
Wednesday’s successful arrest was the latest in a growing number of similar VFAST-led operations to apprehend homicide suspects.
“The number of homicides we have assisted with during the last two months is unprecedented,” U.S. Marshal for Utah Matthew Harris said in a statement.
