Utah police seeking landscape company owner who allegedly shot a customer over a payment disagreement

Ryan Holladay pulled out a gun and fired six times, striking the 34-year-old victim twice in the arm and torso.


BLUFFDALE — An argument over money allegedly owed for landscaping work led to one man being shot Sunday night, according to police.

Saratoga Springs police say Ryan Holladay, 36, went to a Bluffdale, Utah man's house Sunday about 9:30 p.m. "to discuss landscaping work that was performed by the suspect for the victim and a disagreement about payment for the work performed."

According to his Facebook page, Holladay is the owner of Landscaping and Sprinkler Specialists in Riverton, Utah.

Police state that at some point during the discussion Sunday, Holladay pulled out a gun and fired six times, striking the 34-year-old victim twice. The man was shot in the arm and torso.

"The victim’s mother placed a tourniquet on the victim’s arm and his wife then drove him a few blocks to the fire station where he was treated by paramedics and transported to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray," police stated.

Holladay fled in a 2017 Ford pickup truck that was later found abandoned near the Salt Lake City International Airport.

Court records, however, show Holladay has a history of domestic violence and he filed for divorce from his wife in April. In 2017 he was charged with felony trespassing for going to his ex-wife's residence without permission, according to charging documents. The case was later dismissed when both parties reached an agreement, court records state.
