MURRAY, Utah (ABC4 News) — Police are investigating a deadly shooting that happened in Murray on Friday evening.

According to the Murray Police Department, around 5:30 p.m., officers responded to the intersection of Fireclay Ave. and Main St. for a call for shots fired.

Police say two suspects were in a fight with one person in a vehicle and one standing outside of the vehicle when a suspect fired shots at the suspect inside the vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle then drove northbound away from the scene when he got into an accident.

The suspect involved in the accident was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Police say the suspect responsible for the shooting is still at large.

Nearby, hundreds of people were without power Friday night. Although police didn’t confirm the man’s vehicle caused the outage, the city power department told ABC4 that a vehicle crashed into a transformer — which caused 500-800 people to lose power nearby. Power was slowly being restored as ABC4 remained on scene Friday night.
