Police seek “person of interest” in South Salt Lake homicide

SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah – South Salt Lake Police are investigating a homicide that occurred early Saturday morning.

According to a Facebook Live publication on the official department page, SSLPD agents were dispatched to the Southern X-posure Show Club at 3420 S. State Street at approximately 12:10 am for a report of gunfire. A man in his mid-twenties was found injured and taken to an area hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Authorities have not confirmed exactly where the shots were fired or any other details of what happened.

A male suspect fled the area, and police initially said information about him was limited. They then posted a photo, appearing to come from surveillance video at a convenience store, of a “person of interest” in the homicide. He is described as a male in his mid-twenties, standing around six feet tall with short hair.

The department also released a photo of the vehicle it said may have fled from the crime scene. This is a 2007 BMW SUV in gold with the Utah U82 2UE license plate. Police say he’s registered at an address in Murray, but did not disclose the name of the SUV’s owner or person of interest.
