Police search for gunmen after two people shot at Taylorsville apartment
TAYLORSVILLE, Utah — Taylorsville police say the immediate danger is gone, but they’re still looking for two men involved in an argument that ended in gunfire.
It happened off of Atherton Drive and 4500 South at the Atherton Park Apartments.
Neighbors say there’s crime in this area all the time, but never quite like this.
“We were standing here and next thing we hear is ‘pa pow pop,’ and then we run upstairs and then I went into my back window and saw a guy limping,” said DesRae Romyn.
That was the second round of gunfire Romyn heard. The first was just moments earlier.
“The first one, I’m like, that’s not a gun. Like no,” she continues.
Summer and Shane Powers say they were just getting home from the grocery store when a lady was driving out of the complex, very emotional.
“She was bawling,” said the Powers.
“We asked her what happened and she just started sobbing,” they continue.
Police say the fight happened between four men. Two fled the scene and two others were taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds to the leg.
Both victims were in stable condition, and police say one was released from the hospital Thursday morning.
