A Salt Lake City man has been accused of shooting another man in the face in a dispute over stolen Xanax.
Charges were filed Monday in the March 23 shooting in West Valley City. The man took a gun to the victim's home at Overlook Point Apartments, near 4600 South 2970 West, police wrote; witnesses who were in the same car as the man during the drive to the apartment said the man claimed the victim had taken the man's Xanax, and one of the bullets was for the victim.
At the apartment, the victim was showing off more than $1,000 in cash and bragging about how much money he had, police wrote. The suspect arrived and went into a bedroom with the victim while other acquaintances were on the balcony. After a gunshot rang out, the suspect came out of the bedroom; the victim's roommate and another man wrestled with the suspect for the gun, which fired several more times, police wrote.
