August 26, 2019 GMT

TAYLORSVILLE, Utah (AP) — Police are calling the shooting death of a teenage girl at a house party in Taylorsville suspicious.

KUTV of Salt Lake City reported Monday that investigators say 17-year-old Kaylissa O’Leary was shot and killed Saturday night and her car remains missing.

Unified police Sgt. Melody Gray says a 911 caller reported the incident as an “accidental shooting.”

It occurred at a party and most of the teens present took off after hearing gunfire.

Detectives are trying to locate the teens for interviews.


Gray says they have no idea why the victim’s 2010 Honda Civic would be gone. O’Leary did not live at the home where the party was occurring.

She declined to say whether drugs or alcohol were found.
