SLCPD Investigating Shooting After Large Party in Industrial Area Leaves One Man Injured
SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department is investigating a shooting that injured a 32-year-old man.
This investigation started at 1:23 a.m. on Saturday, September 3, 2022 when SLC911 received multiple calls about gunshots being heard near 1700 South 4100 West, a part of the city’s industrial neighborhood.
While responding, dispatchers told officers someone was shot.
Officers found bullet casings in the parking lot of a business and evidence of a large party. Partygoers started leaving the area, making it difficult for officers to initially collect witness statements and evidence.
Additional officers arrived and secured the scene. Officers did not find any shooting victims while on scene. Later, officers learned a man who attended the party showed up at a local hospital by car with a gunshot wound to his leg. He is expected to survive. Officers gathered information about two suspects involved in the shooting.
The first suspect is described as a 20–30-year-old Black man, last seen wearing a red Versace shirt, red hat, and blue pants.
The second suspect is described as a 35–40-year-old Hispanic man, approximately 5-feet 10-inches tall, arm and face tattoos, last seen wearing a blue Yankees hat.
Officers believe the two suspects left in an unknown SUV.
At this time, SLCPD is investigating this shooting as being gang-related.
Anyone who may have information about this incident should call 801-799-3000 and reference case 22-171308.
No further information on this case is being released at this time. Neither the PIO nor the On-Duty Watch Commander are available for interviews.
