SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) -An 18-year-old man is dead after police say he was involved in a drug-related home invasion Tuesday evening in Salt Lake City.
Sgt. Brandon Shearer with the Salt Lake City Police Department, says just after 10 p.m. officers received a call of a home invasion robbery at Rendon Court.
Investigators say four suspects forced their way into the home and eventually took off in a vehicle.
“At some point, someone from the home shot at the vehicle,” Sgt. Shearer said.
Shortly after that call, officers received a report of a crash with shots fired, near 200 North and 600 West.
