Neighbors who heard shots had called the police, he said. Metro Gang Unit officers spotted a car fleeing the area and chased it until the driver abandoned the vehicle. Two passengers were taken into custody but later released; the car has been impounded.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the Unified Police Department at 801-743-7000.
