4700 W. 700 S.
Victims were in this area watching cars racing with other people. A white Chrysler 300 pulled up to the crowd and a Hispanic male fired several shots from the driver side window striking both victims in the leg. Both were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Two separate protests were held. One group gathered at 900 S. 300 W. while the other gathered at the Utah State Capitol.
The group at 900 South eventually took over the road and marched around the downtown area. When they reached the District Attorney’s office, they hung posters while others painted the 500 south roadway red.
Eventually the 900 South group merged with those at the Capitol and marched down State Street to Washington Square where more posters were hung. The combined group then marched throughout downtown blocking intersections as they went, sometimes for long periods of time. The groups eventually returned to the Capitol at approximately 11:00 p.m.
At one point a minor altercation occurred when a pedestrian attempted to remove the protestors posters.
Several members of the group followed officers who were assisting with traffic control. Based on social media posts observed later it appears these individuals were gathering officer information in order to make these posts.
