SALT LAKE COUNTY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – Several rock climbers dodged a bullet Monday night, literally.

Police say the climbers were in Little Cottonwood Canyon when someone started shooting at them from the north. “The climbers were able to hear the bullets passing them and impacting the rock in their immediate area,” Lt. Lohrke with Unified Police Department said.

When officers arrived, they say they found several bullet casings in the area (about 5267 East Little Cottonwood Rd). A witness said there was a green car with about three people inside that left the area before police arrived.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Unified Police Department at 801-743-7000.
