Man shot in leg outside Salt Lake City club

First Published Jul 21 2013 11:30 am • Last Updated Jul 21 2013 10:15 pm

A man was expected to recover Sunday after he was apparently shot in the leg at random outside a Salt Lake City club.

Salt Lake City police Lt. Scott White said the man was outside Circle Lounge, 328 S. State St., about 1:30 a.m. when someone fired off four of five shots.

One of those shots struck the man, who is in his early 20s, in the calf.

White said the alleged shooter was part of a group of individuals who had been told to leave the club earlier in the evening following an incident.

The group allegedly returned at closing armed with a gun, and one of the individuals started shooting either in the air or at the crowd of patrons outside, White said.

He said the victim didn’t know the suspects and appeared to been hit at random.

The suspects then fled in a silver sedan. A witness, however, was able to capture a partial plate number, which led officers to a residence in Cottonwood Heights.

Four people were detained for questioning, and one of those men was later arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault, White said.
