SALT LAKE CITY — Today, the Salt Lake City Police Department safely took the previously identified 14-year-old juvenile wanted in connection to the deadly shooting on Ivy Circle into custody.
This investigation started at 8:19 p.m., on Saturday, February 11, 2023, when SLC911 took a call about a shooting near 1601 West Ivy Circle.
Officers responded and found a 17-year-old male with a critical gunshot wound.
The Salt Lake City Fire Department and Gold Cross Ambulance took the juvenile to the hospital where he later died.
Responding officers secured the area, located witnesses, and checked for any evidence.
Because the 17-year-old died, detectives with the SLCPD Homicide Squad led the investigation.

With the assistance of the Salt Lake City Police Department SWAT Team, Violent Criminal Apprehension Team (VCAT), and Liberty Patrol Division Bike Squad, detectives assigned to the SLCPD Homicide Squad safely took the juvenile into custody.
Officers transported the juvenile to the Public Safety Building where he will begin being processed for booking into the Salt Lake Valley Detention Center.
Because the suspect is a juvenile, no personal or other information is being released at this time.
Neither the PIO nor the On-Duty Watch Commander are available for interviews.
