MAGNA, Utah (ABC4) – A man has died following a shooting at a Magna apartment complex Friday afternoon.
Police say the shooting took place around 4:28 p.m. at the Colony Farms apartment complex near 7250 West 2600 South.
Jon Dorman, a resident who lives in the area, tells ABC4 that the two men looked like they were “horsing around” at first.
Dorman says he was in his apartment when he looked out the window and saw two people fighting in the parking lot.
About a minute later, Dorman says both men sprinted back to their cars. The victim allegedly entered his car in what appeared to be an attempt to flee the scene.
Dorman says the suspect pulled a gun out of his own car and aimed it at the victim. Dorman says he heard about 10 shots and then the suspect went back into his car and drove off.
When officers arrived on the scene they found a 20-year-old man in the driver’s seat of a car with multiple gunshot wounds. The man was declared dead at the scene. No one else was injured in the shooting.
Witnesses reported to police that a man was seen leaving the scene at a high rate of speed, shortly after the shooting.
Officials say they currently do not have a suspect in custody.
There is no danger to the community at this time, as police said this does not appear to be a random incident.
Investigators are expected to be on the scene for several more hours.
This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
