SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department is investigating a shooting that seriously injured a man.
This investigation started at approximately 5:30 p.m. on February 19, 2022 when SLC911 received information about a person with a gunshot wound near 25 North Redwood Road.
Officers and paramedics arrived on scene an located a man inside a vehicle with a shooting-related injury. Paramedics transported the victim to an area hospital in serious condition.
Officers have located two crime scenes associated with this incident: one at North Temple and North Cornell and the other at 1530 West North Temple.
Officers are in the early stages of the investigation and are working to determine the circumstances that led up to the shooting. Based on the preliminary investigation, it appears the suspect, or suspects, shot from a vehicle while the victim was also in his vehicle.
After the shooting ended, the suspect or suspects continued driving and left the area.
Officers remain in the area working to secure the two crime scenes and are speaking with witnesses and gather evidence. At this point, there is no verified suspect description for release. If that changes and it is appropriate to the investigation, that information will be shared.
