This investigation started at 8:25 p.m. on September 25, 2022, when SLC911 received a 9-1-1 call about a shooting that had just occurred at 718 North 900 West.
Officers immediately responded and found the victim, a woman, inside an apartment unit with a gunshot wound. Officers applied a chest seal and started performing CPR.
