In the incident took place after the suspects and a pedestrian allegedly exchanged gang signs at a crosswalk near 3800 South and 2200 West about 3:45 p.m. on Sunday. It was undetermined whether the occupants of the car or the pedestrian shot first.

However, no one was injured in the gunfire.

Police responding to 911 calls located the car, which bore several bullet holes in its side, and arrested the pair, but a search of the apartment complex area where the third alleged gunman fled was unsuccessful.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call WVCPD at 801-840-4000.
