Police: One person hurt in shooting near Montgomery Street, suspect outstanding

SALT LAKE CITY — One person was sent to the hospital in serious condition after being shot, police say.

Salt Lake City police Detective Dalton Beebe told KSL TV that the shooting happened near 900 South Montgomery Street at approximately 3:30 p.m.

When police arrived, they found a man shot, and officers began life-saving aid. An ambulance arrived and took the man to a local hospital in serious condition.

“I was coming back from a shopping trip,” Kristin Evans, a resident of the area said that’s when she saw the neighborhood surrounded by cop cars and crime scene tape.

“That’s pretty much how I learned about this,” Evans said.

Neighbors suddenly felt unnerved.

“Just a block from my house, it’s pretty crazy,” Evans said.

Kristin Evans wasn’t here for the gunfire.

“Originally I thought it was a car backfiring?” A witness, who didn’t share her name said. “She was like…’that was a gunshot — somebody just got shot.’”

This woman was still rattled after moving in for a closer look.

“He was half-way under his car and he was bleeding out of his back,” the witness said.

After first responders rushed the man to the hospital, their attention turned to solving the crime.

“We do have detectives working on it and we are looking for the individual responsible,” Beebe said.

Investigators late tonight said it appeared the shooting started as an argument leaving a 29-year-old man seriously injured.

Neighbors were left to question what went so horribly wrong and what could have gone even worse.

“It was definitely nerve-racking…. like I said, especially with kids,” the witness said. “I’m disheartened, I’m sad, I’m disappointed.”

Beebe said there is no threat to the public and believes this is an isolated incident.

“I really hope that the person who was harmed is okay, and I hope that they find the person who did it,”

Police have not put out much in terms of any kind of suspect description yet but they’re hoping anyone with information about this case will contact them at 801-799-3000.
