Police said the shooting happened near 334 E Center Street in Provo.
A 27 male is in custody as a person of interest. King said this person did make the 911 call.
Police aren’t specifying how the two may have known each other. He was the only other person in the home at the time.
“At this point I will say that he’s not a suspect in custody. He’s definitely a person of interest and is detained at this time,” King said. “So he’s not free to go.”
Police call this a suspicious death, but we still don’t have a clear picture of what happened.
