Police Investigating After Shots Fired At West Valley City Gas Station
WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — Police have opened an investigation after shots were fired from a vehicle toward a Chevon gas station in West Valley City.
Sgt. Christopher Walsh with the West Valley City Police Department said a call came in Saturday afternoon that a person driving a tan, four-door sedan had fired five to six shots in the direction of the station.
When officers arrived on scene, they found evidence of the shooting in the form of bullet holes in neighbor’s property fences.
“One of the rounds caused debris to hit a 10-year-old female on the foot,” said Walsh.
He said no medical attention was needed as the injury was very minor.
Officers were looking for surveillance video from nearby businesses, according to Walsh, as the incident was under investigation.
“We don’t have any indication that there’s a risk to the public,” he said. “It seems like this was just a random act of violence.”
Walsh said the motive for the shooting was unknown.
