2 teens arrested after man is shot to death outside Millcreek apartment complex

Unified Police have arrested two teenagers in the shooting death of a man at a Millcreek apartment complex early Wednesday morning.

Police received a report of shots near an apartment complex near 760 West 3900 South at about 2 a.m., according to UPD Sgt. Melody Gray. Officers arrived to find Taylor Kauvaka, 31, on the ground outside. Efforts were made to revive him, but he died there.

An 18-year-old from Midvale and a 19-year-old from West Jordan have been arrested in connection with the shooting and booked into the Salt Lake County jail, according to UPD. The younger one, according to booking documents, approached officers and admitted to the attack.

According to Gray, the shooting is believed to be the result on an online argument that escalated when the victim and the suspects agreed to meet outside the apartment complex. Police found a gun they believe may have been used in the shooting.
