WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – A man drove himself to the hospital after being shot early Wednesday at the intersection of 4000 South and 1300 West.
The victim, 34, was admitted to Jordan Valley Medical Center around 3:23 a.m. with a gunshot wound to the shoulder. The victim was expected to recover and be released shortly after. Police said the bullet was still in his shoulder when they spoke to him at the hospital.
Police processed the scene until about 5:45 a.m. Wednesday. Broken glass could be seen in the intersection where the victim’s car window was apparently shot out.
Police said the victim was driving down 1300 West when a beige car occupied by two Hispanic men pulled up next to him. The occupants showed a gun and began shooting. The victim turned away upon seeing the gun and was shot in the left shoulder.
There was a chase involving a stolen vehicle shortly after the shooting, but police said they are unsure if that chase is related to this shooting. The chase ended after speeds reached dangerous levels, police said.
No arrests have been made in connection to the early-morning incident.
