WEST JORDAN, Utah (ABC4) – Following an active West Jordan shooting, officers seek answers in locating an alleged suspect and determining their motive, Saturday morning.

On January 16, West Jordan Police officers were dispatched to an area near 9300 south Redwood around 7:58 a.m., on reports of multiple gunshot wounds.

According to officials, when officers arrived on scene, a 21-year-old man was discovered with a gunshot wound to both, his arm and leg.
