PARK CITY, Utah – A 22-year-old woman was hospitalized after a shooting at a rental property in the Kimball Junction area, according to officials with the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said they received multiple 911 calls around 3:24 a.m. Sunday from residents saying they heard gunshots.

“One caller reported seeing ‘dozens of cars’ leaving a residence on Teal Drive, a neighborhood on the northside of I-80 at Kimball Junction,” officials said. “Deputies quickly responded to the area and saw bullet casings at a house, later found to be a nightly rental property.”

Witnesses told police there was a party at the home prior to the shooting.

A short time later, deputies said they located three vehicles that were at the home on U.S. Highway 40 near Silver Summit.

Deputies stopped one of the vehicles and “information was received that there was in fact a shooting and the victim was being transported to Park City Medical Center in a separate vehicle.”

Officials said the victim, a 22-year-old woman from Sandy, was airlifted to a Salt Lake area hospital with a gunshot wound to the back that was not considered life-threatening.

“Investigators have identified some of the people involved in the incident – names will become available if arrests are made in connection with the shooting,” officials said. “Summit County Sheriff’s Office investigators are working to determine what events led to the shooting.”

Anyone with information was asked to call the Summit County Sheriff’s office at 435-615-3601.
