Police: Driver fatally shot as home invasion suspects leave
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Salt Lake City police say a man is dead after being shot as he and three other suspects drove away from the scene of a reported home invasion Tuesday night.
Police say an occupant of the home went outside and fired on the departing suspects’ car, fatally wounding the 18-year-old driver, and it crashed a few blocks away.
Police say officers later located another 18-year-old man and two 17-year-olds at a nearby train station and they were arrested on suspicion of aggravate burglary.
According to police, detectives were still investigating the shooting and other circumstances of the incident but said the home invasion appeared to be related to drugs or proceeds from drug sales.
The dead man’s identity was not released.
