ORIGINAL HEADING: Woman found dead with gunshot wound in abandoned car on I-80
SATURDAY 05/1/21 3:00 a.m.
MILLCREEK, Utah (ABC4) – A man is in police custody Saturday after a woman was found dead with a gunshot wound in an abandoned vehicle on I-80 near the State Street exit by 2400 South. Utah Highway Patrol and South Salt Lake Police initially responded to the call of a single-vehicle accident and suspicious death around 3 a.m.
“We had a bystander that was driving behind the vehicle, that saw the accident happen, and called 911 to report the accident. The accident was the initial call for service that we responded to, to assist. But it evolved past a vehicle accident,” shares Danielle Croyle with South Salt Lake Police.
Sgt. Melody Cutler with Unified Police says the investigation was turned over to their department when they determined the incident began as a domestic violence case near 700 E. Nibley View Court in Millcreek. She states the alleged suspect and victim were boyfriend and girlfriend and have had prior incidents of domestic violence.
Investigators say they are unsure when the shooting happened or where the alleged suspect was headed in the vehicle, but believe he crashed at one point on I-80, fled, and left the victim in the passenger seat.
Detectives have identified the victim as 32-year-old Shandon Nicole Scott of Millcreek, Utah. Information regarding the alleged suspect has not been released yet.
ABC4 will release more information as it comes in.
