SLCPD Investigating Property Damage from Shots Fired

SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department is requesting assistance from our community as we investigate an overnight shooting that resulted in a house being damaged by gunfire.

This investigation started around 1:30 a.m. on Thursday March 16, 2023, when SLC911 received multiple 9-1-1 calls about shots being heard around 1500 South Main Street and the immediate area. Officers responded and started an investigation. Officers did not initially find any property damage or evidence.

At approximately 7 a.m., a community member called SLC911 and reported finding a bullet hole in the wall of his house.

Officers and a SLCPD Crime Lab technician responded to the scene and located the bullet hole in the wall of the man’s home.

Officers also found multiple shell casings on the ground.  SLCPD is not aware of any injuries.

The motive for the shooting is under investigation.

Based on the preliminary investigation, officers believe the shots were fired from a dark colored vehicle traveling west on Van Buren Avenue.

Anyone with information about the car, or video of the gun being fired, or any additional property damage, should call 801-799-3000 and reference case 23-53197.
