Police did not immediately find either the victim nor the suspect when they responded to numerous 911 calls about the gunfire. However, the victim was soon located in Murray, where his friends reportedly had driven him to Intermountain Medical Center.

SLCPD Sgt. Robin Heiden said the suspect was described as a Polynesian man in his late teens, 6-foot-1, and last seen wearing a khaki shorts and a blue hooded jacket with gray lining.

Possible gang connections were being explored by detectives as part of the investigation, but police declined to further discuss possible motives, noting the matter was part of an ongoing investigation.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call SLCPD at 801-799-3000.
