SLCPD Investigating Shooting, Man Seriously Injured
SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department is investigating a shooting that injured a 29-year-old man.
This investigation started at 3:34 p.m. on Thursday, June 22, 2023, when SLC911 received calls about a shooting near 900 South Montgomery Street.
SLCPD patrol officers, detectives with the SLCPD’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Team (VCAT), and the SLCPD’s Pioneer Division Bike Squad arrived and found a 29-year-old-man with a gunshot wound.
Officers immediately provided medical aid.
The Salt Lake City Fire Department and Gold Cross Ambulance arrived and gave additional emergency care. Paramedics took the man to a local hospital in serious condition. His injuries are not considered life-threatening.
