MURRAY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Police have arrested two suspects after a woman was shot in front of a smoke shop Saturday afternoon.

Andrew Lucero, 35, and Siesia Otulangi Makaafi, also 35, were booked into the Salt Lake County Jail on Saturday after police responded to a shooting around 2 p.m. near 4500 South 300 West.
